Crocs

No, I’m not talking about the shoes (which by the way, my son always seems to wear when he’s over here) but rather the ancient crocodiles. Those amazing animals that have been around for millions of years.

Anyway, they’ve been in the news lately because it appears now that they use tools to hunt. This according to the article “Alligators and Crocodiles Use Tools to Hunt, in a First” by Douglas Main at LiveScience.

I also recently came across this informative article on one particular species of the crocodile in which I was unaware of, the Cuban Crocodile. The article is entitled “Sunday Species Snapshot: Cuban Crocodile” by John R. Platt at the Extinction Countdown blog over at Scientific American. I guess as the old adage goes, you learn something new everyday.

Sincerely-
