Clever Crocs

I've always known that crocodiles were cunning creatures. A lot smarter than most people give them credit for. But I just found a most fascinating development that shows just how adaptable and clever crocs and gators can be.

Turns out that not only can these living tanks adapt their hunting styles for different styles of prey but they know how to set up traps to lure prey in close. Now that is darned cool. Using sticks balanced on their snouts during the nest-building season for birds these saurians are able to make easy meals out of birds lacking caution. This only further goes to demonstrate the cold, calculating intelligence that these critters have. It's no accident that these monsters predated the legendary dinosaurs but outlasted them.

Those who have lived in places with crocs and gators know that they are some of the deadliest beasts to crawl over this little mud ball, and they aren't going anywhere. And you know what? That suits me just fine. The world wouldn't be the same without these dragons.
