The happiest crocodile you'll ever see

Crocodiles, who first gained international fame from the 1986 Paul Hogan movie, Crocodile Dundee, have good reason to celebrate. There are about 23 different species of crocodilians. These large aquatic reptiles live throughout the world in tropical regions in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia. Also, they can bite your flippin' head off. Wouldn't that make you jump for joy - if you were a crocodile?

If you happen to encounter a crocodile and it lashes out at you, the first thing you need to do is to aggressively fight back. Why? A crocodile's jaw has so much power that once it’s locked, no amount of struggling will get it back open. Better avoid that. One of the best defenses for fighting off a crocodile is to try gouging his eyes out - being this is one of the few vulnerable spots on a croc. If a crocodile eye-gouge is not possible, the next best thing is to attack its nostrils, ears, or palatal valve. Pretty much any of those scenarios says, "My, what a crappy day!"
