If you don't want to register at the New York Times, an abbreviated version of the first story can be found here.

My favorite quote from the crocodile story:
Workplace safety, an evolving concept in China, is an obvious concern at Crocopark. Mr. He displayed scarred forearms, the result of repeated lacerations from crocodile teeth, and admitted it is a recurrent problem.

The workers sew up the shorter slashes themselves, using surgical thread and needles. "There is a nurse, but she is really for the visitors," Mr. He said
