Crocodiles Can Climb Trees
11 February 2014 5:00 pm
Crocodiles just became a lot more terrifying. A new study published in Herpetology Notes finds that some species of the reptiles can climb trees as far as the crown, where the branches and leaves extend outward. How high the crocs venture depends on their size, but the highest observed was at about 3 meters. Scientists speculate the reptiles hike up trees for improved site surveillance and sunbathing when there are few places to bask on the ground.
