Startling Footage: Shark and Crocodile

I happened upon this video the other night, and thought you might be intrigued by it.

What happens when a huge saltwater crocodile, swimming in shallow water, crosses the path of a bull shark? The bull shark, by the way, is responsible for more attacks on humans than any other species of shark–and it’s just as at home in fresh water as it is in salt. Saltwater crocodiles also eat people, when they can get them.

The croc being twice the size of the shark, and armed with horrendously powerful jaws and lots and lots of sharp teeth, the bull shark decides not to bother it.

But the thing that gets me is… does anybody ever go wading, fishing, or clamming in that water?

Byron: Hiding from the Lawsuit

Quokka Hiding - Rottnest Island - ZooChat

G’day–or not so good! Byron the Quokka here, and I dassn’t tell you where “here” is because there’s a bloke runnin’ all over Rottnest Island trying to slap a lawsuit on me. I knew these new dorms had to be good for something. They look just like tufts of grass, don’t they?

I can hardly believe there’s someone suing us–suing Quokka University, by jove!–for teaching things that aren’t true. Good grief! Do you think you can get a college accredited by teaching truth? Pull the other one! The whole academic world would come after us with shotguns if we ever taught anything that’s true.

We are in trouble because we plainly labeled our false facts “False Facts.” Guaranteed not to be true! You have our word on it! Crikey, they’re not our false facts at all, we’re just usin’ ’em for fund-raising: it’s Acme False Facts Inc. that they ought to be suing.

Well, now we’re going to have to go to the bother of luring the crocodile in from the salt marshes and luring the lawsuit wallah into the pond with the crocodile. We are told that this is what universities do with anyone who gets in their way. Well, we do want our accreditation, don’t we? When in Rome, etc.
