Actual crocodile armour

Croc armour

This is what real Roman armour looks like when it’s made from crocodile leather. It’s also Egyptian armour.

This is ceremonial garb of a crocodile cult. The Romans had garrisons all over Eygpt and they took part in civic and religious events, life and raised families. This armour was found on the banks of the Nile, near Manfalout in central Egypt.
