Secondary schools in Dorset are being invited to write a song to win a trip for their class to the VIP opening of a crocodile sanctuary.
Weymouth Sea Life Park is spending Pounds 1 million on Crocodile Creek, a new attraction that includes a water ride through a swamp full of crocodiles. Spectators will be protected by reinforced glass.
The swamp is a refuge for abandoned crocodiles. As well as being a visitor attraction, the park hopes to raise awareness of crocodile conservation.
The competition is open to 11 to 13-year-olds who must produce an original second verse for the lyric: Never smile at a crocodileNo, you can't get friendly with a crocodileDon't be taken in by his welcome grinHe's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin.
