Crocodile Takes Lawnmower—It Makes Plenty Enough Sense

I feel I’d be remiss not to post about the saltwater crocodile in Australia that grabbed a lawnmower and watched over it quite closely.

The crocodile was in time tricked into giving up the lawnmower. 

Here is a link to a video of the lawnmower abduction. 

This took place at the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, Australia.

Here are facts about visiting Australia.  I’ve never been to Australia.

If you decide to visit Australia, please be certain to tip service workers well and to be respectful of the working people you encounter on your trip.

Here is the website for Occupy Sydney, Australia.  

A saltwater crocodile is a large and fearsome creature.

Here is some history of lawnmowers.

I know this is a freak show kind of story, but that does not mean you can’t use it to learn something new.

So much of what goes on that we might view as more serious news is a freak show as well.

Given your expectation that giant crocodiles would be aggressive and unpredictable, you could argue that this story makes more sense than does much of the daily news.

There is always so much to learn.

Here are facts about reptiles.

Here is a history of lawns.

I hope folks are having a nice holiday season.

  1. Saw the video last night. Fortunately for those of us in Cincinnati, the crocodiles and alligators in the zoo and the Newport Aquarium (who can forget Mightly Mike) are safely stowed away. The only ones we need fear are those that thoughtless people let loose once the baby crocs and gators they thought might be fun pets aren’t so much. Watch those sewers and ponds, people.

  2. A cold blooded creature that could survive a Cincinnati winter might be worth risking life and limb to capture as a biological oddity. Maybe even a new species of these ancient creatues.
