    said so much about the crocodiles

    Hi!
    What is the exact meaning of the following sentences? The writer, after a long narration about crocodile, writes the following sentence. It is mentionable that the text is from a portuguese text written 400 years ago, and translated 100 years ago into English.

    "Having said so much about the crocodiles, there occurs to me the case of one, worth knowing, which at the reader's pleasure may pass with the rest, for that it is true."

    Thanks heartily

    'I've relayed a bunch of facts about crocodiles, so now I'd like to add an interesting anecdote about a certain individual (crocodile). The reader can take it as adding to our body of knowledge, because I say it's a true story.'

    The story was about an elephant that killed the crocodile who attacked it. I would love to see a video. I love elephants.
