Stephanie Pappas on yet another reason why Australia is not on my bucket list.
In Australia, they observed freshwater crocodiles basking on low-hanging branches day and night. When approached by boats, the crocs splashed into the water below to escape. Climbing Aussie crocodiles were more likely to be small or juvenile; hatchlings are sometimes able to cling to brickwork and escape crocodile farms.
Oh, good. Only the smaller ones climb trees. That’s comforting.
