Fact of the Day: Crocodile Manners

Like alligators, American crocodiles are far less aggressive than the crocodiles found in other parts of the world like Africa and Australia.

Hmmm.... I still DON'T want to be around them, that's for sure.

Good report Adam.
Yep - here our crocodiles - fresh water and salt and not very friendly.
Are you aware of how they kill prey??
Grab in big teeth, spin you around until you drown, then hide you for eating at their leisure.
I suppose like "eggs on toast"!!!!!
That would be very rotten eggs, I suspect.
Crocodiles have a strange sense of eating habits.
Then again they are very wise or should I say economical - kill humans and animals and store for the future, eh???

They have manners? Like using a bib to keep juice off of their leather skin while eating?

They are so prehistoric looking and even if they are not as aggressive, they still look like they are up to no good!!
