Croc Update ('Cage of Death' Edition)

Probably not my next vacation stop, but still. . . .

FOXNews.com - Theme Park's 'Cage of Death' Drops Tourists Into Crocodile Tank - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News: "A new Australian theme park hopes to lure tourists into their 'Cage of Death' for a close encounter with an 18-foot crocodile, the Northern Territory News reported.

Just 1.6 inches of acrylic will separate thrill seekers from the jaws of Choppa – a saltwater crocodile.

Brave tourists will climb into a clear box before being lowered into Choppa's lair.

They will then spend 15 minutes inside the 9-foot-high cage and watch Choppa, who lost both front feet while fighting other crocodiles, trying to take a bite out of them."

    If you click on the story until you get to the Northern Territory News story you'll get a great picture of Choppa trying to eat a guy.

  2. I don't get it. I'm not sure if the increase in gators in the San Francisco Bay Area can be attributed to more people bringing them here as pets, or to you blogging about gators. Methinks the latter.

    This time we have a caiman, but he is both small and elusive.

  3. And if I scrolled further down the page, I would've known (and should've known) that you already posted on it.

    The "Cage of Death"- sounds like a great location for a Balla Powder kiosk.
