Scarring Ritual

At the age of eight, there is a special ritual where they are first desensitized by being mildly whipped with a numbing cacti. They then are carved into with a knife and given amazing patterns of adornment. The fresh wounds are covered with sap which makes for the embossed skin. And so the crocodile is magically embedded within.
