(A) Activate Child's Coffin

I’m gonna start off today with an educational post about one of my favorite collective groups of animals: CROCODILES. Or members of the genus Crocodylia

Here’s some of my favorite crocodile facts:

  • This group of animals, on the whole, is essentially a collection of living relics. They’ve been largely evolutionarily unchanged for millions of years. 
  • The saltwater crocodile is the largest living reptile known to man. The biggest one on record was 20.24 ft, or 6.17 meters long. It’s still alive today in captivity in the Philippines. 
  • Salt and Nile crocodiles have amazingly long life spans. In ideal circumstances, some have been studied and shown to be up to 100 years old. 
  • Also like a lot of reptiles, if allowed to thrive in ideal circumstances with no interference, they will just grow continuously to monstrous sizes. 
  • The sex a crocodile is born with isn’t determined by genetics. Instead, it changes depending on the average temperature the egg is exposed to during a specific period of time in its incubation.
  • Crocodiles can launch themselves out of the water up to a height equal to their body length.
  • They can also gallop on land. 
  • There’s no ideally safe way to approach a crocodile. Their tails are so powerful that, if whipped hard enough, the can break a mans legs.
  • Basically, don’t fuck with crocodiles. Unless you are a hippo. Then you can fuck with crocodiles.
