Mar 24, 2009: Robo-Croc

Robo-Croc is a 10-foot male crocodile that got his head run over by a car.
This happened down in the Florida Keys last December... probably there for the Christmas holidays.

Anyway, he was taken to Miami's Metrozoo, but they didn't think he'd make it because his broken snout was hanging limp.
As if a limp snout wasn't depressing enough, he couldn't eat, and after three months things looked pretty grim.
Then Douglas Mader, of the Marathon Veterinary Hospital, decided to cure him or kill him.



Instead of going in an splicing bones with screws and metal bits, like the do with people, Robo-Croc is spliced on the outside.



Time will tell how long he makes it, but at least he doesn't have a limp snout.

He may have a future in horror films and children's nightmares, too.

Robo-Croc

Nothing worse than a limp snout.........



SPUCK  Tuesday Mar 24 06:13 AM

There I t'was a baitin my hook down by yonder pond when I sees what looks like an old dressah with shiny new hinges on it, in the shallows. But then it grabbed ol'yeller and drug him in tah the deep. I ain't never seen no dressah move so gawl darn fast!



spudcon  Tuesday Mar 24 07:36 AM

Damn! Next time, gotta drive a bigger truck.



capnhowdy  Tuesday Mar 24 08:06 AM

Remove all metal splicings prior to ingestion. Cook thoroughly till internal temperature is 160 degrees.



Pie  Tuesday Mar 24 08:49 AM

Wouldn't it have been kinder to put the darn thing out of its misery?



HungLikeJesus  Tuesday Mar 24 09:50 AM

It's Doctor Crocenstein!

He's now the coolest croc in the swamp.

I second that emotion.


birdclaw  Tuesday Mar 24 10:24 AM

Ya know if that would have been a homeless person they probably wouldn't even have been taken to a hospital.

Nuke it from Orbit



Shawnee123  Tuesday Mar 24 10:33 AM

Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never dip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile
You may very well be well bred
Lots ot etiquette in your head
But there's always some special case, time or place
To forget etiquette
For instance:
Never smile at a crocodile



Sheldonrs  Tuesday Mar 24 10:39 AM

He may not have the bite he used to but he's already made the switch from analog to HD.



4fingermalone  Tuesday Mar 24 12:21 PM

Nice bling on the grill



Shawnee123  Tuesday Mar 24 12:24 PM

The story is riveting.

Hillrick  Tuesday Mar 24 12:57 PM

What's up?

We already have a healthy amount of comments and no one has connected this alligators free health care to the current socialist government? Must still be waiting for the talking points to be delivered...

Anyhoo, cool story Mr Bruce.

I bet it hurts like a mofo...



classicman  Tuesday Mar 24 01:27 PM

..."screw that!"



dar512  Tuesday Mar 24 01:54 PM

Yeah, he is definitely screwed.



Gravdigr  Tuesday Mar 24 04:41 PM

So that's why my new boots are on backorder.



hulk  Tuesday Mar 24 05:34 PM

Do all crocs turn a puke green color when they have a limp snout?

Glad to see the doc's pre-drilling those holes at least!!

that's OK, 'cause you could just load them up in their EDAR gurneys and give 'em a shove in the right direction

Kasszia  Wednesday Mar 25 12:07 AM

Ok, so I am enjoying the puns guys, but an honest question: Why wait THREE MONTHS



Kasszia  Wednesday Mar 25 12:08 AM

Ok, so I am enjoying the puns guys, but an honest question: Why wait THREE MONTHS before deciding to do something???

Would enjoy a nice new bag though...

National Health Service -downside of the free care


TheMercenary  Wednesday Mar 25 08:42 PM

Poor fella. That head would look great on my mantle.



capnhowdy  Wednesday Mar 25 08:57 PM

I remember a joke Buddy Hackett told about two fags fucking a dead alligator on the bus. Well... almost remember.



lumberjim  Wednesday Mar 25 09:32 PM

Robo-cock

capnhowdy  Wednesday Mar 25 10:34 PM

I want to say yes with you being the biggest cock on the forum, but I ain't. No. I ain't goin' there.

A cheaper alternative to liposuction (or is it dynosuction?)? They did mention the weight loss...

I would assume it's because they didn't know what to do. What they did do was a shot in the dark, so they waited until it was absolutely necessary or the gator would die.

Why did they leave a gaping hole in his upper jaw? Couldn't they screw on a metal plate or use duct tape?


xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Mar 28 08:03 PM

That doesn't look 3 months old, maybe it's a new wound?
