"..He escaped but was treated for wounds to his head and neck at a hospital in the remote mining town of Nhulunbuy.

Galeran is an Australian resident born in the southeastern French city of Avignon."

Ah, see...... He was only French by technicality, no wonder he didn't surrender immediately.

That croc was just being environmentally conscious, he was trying to recycle the fisherman. I think it deserves a presidential award.

If he didn't wash that Frenchman first, it was bound to taste funny.

I just got back on a symposium outlining the perils that the "Mongolian Crotch Tick" faces, as well as what we can do about it. It turns out that the biggest obstacle to the ticks survival is the planned Hydro electric generator that is just upstream of the ticks home range. This plant would bring electricity and clean water to millions of people nearby, but there is also the issue of the rare and endangered Tick. So we got a five year injunction against the project starting so everyone can study the situation.
