There are 23 species of crocodiles. Here is my favorite: the indo-pacific or the salt water.
A 12 year old boy was with his friends in eastern Indonesia and was killed and eaten by a crocodile! Crocodiles are masters of camouflage who go underwater and stay still. They can hold their breath for hours at a time waiting for prey to walk by. Crocodiles are not the same species as alligators. Crocodiles can be found all over the world while alligators can be found only in southeastern USA and in some parts of China.
Crocodiles have the biggest bite force of the animal kingdom I would not like to meet a crocodile in the water. You should not approach one they can run up to 10-11 kph (7mph)
The Bull shark, also known by the Zambezi shark, is the deadliest shark in my opinion. Some people think the great white shark or the tiger sharkbut the reason I think the bull shark isthe most dangerous is it rams its victims before they attack.
They can live in fresh water. There have been a number of fatal unprovoked attacks in fresh water and obviouslysalt water. In the ocean, the bull shark normally attacks in warm, shallow water. The most attacks are in the shark capital of the world, Florida, and South Africa.
Don’t worry though, you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than getting attacked by a shark.
The Alligator Gar is the biggest fish in North America. The biggest Alligator Gar ever recorded was 14 feet long. That’s about three picnic tables in length! They were almost wiped off the planet because of over fishing and because they were accused of vicious attacks on humans. These attacks have never been confirmed.
People used a fishing rod to pull the gar to the surface then used a bow and arrow to get through the armor-like scales.
The Alligator Gar is a mighty big fish–but it’s not an alligator.
The Alligator snapping turtle can have a bite force of 1004 pounds of pressure that is close to a lion and a shark combined! And more than some adult hyenas who can break bones. The Alligator snapping turtle can weigh 94 pounds –that’s more then a 6 year old. This turtle can have 5 times more jaw strength than the regular snapping turtle. Photo Credit: Keith via Compfight
Do you have turtles where you live? What type are they? Do you think people should have turtles for pets?
I just learned that we are going to have a baby. His name is Elliot and he is almost two months old and he is cute. We can barely touch the baby because he can not fight germs very well. Worst case scenario would be he could get very sick and possibly die. That’s why we can only touch his foot but really not much else. Also, we can’t touch his toys either because he will put them in his mouth. That’s what babies always do.
Did you know that sometimes they pick kids to come on the feild in minor league baseball? These kids pick up balls and give them back to the pitcher. The video you are going to see is amazing because the girl jumps off two walls to catch a ball.
Did you think that was real? If you did, wrong! That was for a sports drink advertisement for Gatorade. The stunt used pullys to help her get in the air.
I wonder if anyone could do this trick. What do you think?
All is peaceful in the sky, plenty of birds to eat and hang gliders… yummy. I live in the jungle but I spend my days in the sky. I live near a town and everyone there is scared to see me. They try to shoot me down with missiles but I am too fast for them and I flee to the jungle. But in the night, brave towns people try to find me. They just see a flash as they come back for me but they go insane from what they see. They hear screams but never come back!
