Sept 22, 2009: Saltie Adrenaline
Adrenaline = noun: a catecholamine secreted by the adrenal medulla in response to stress (trade name Adrenalin); stimulates autonomic nerve action.
People pay money to do this.

Man, that looks like fun, even without Miss Bikini-chick. And it is just a 3,075 kilometre drive away. (Each way!)

This is kind of like cyber dating. Cage=monitor screen.

I wonder if the crane operator can accidentally lower the cage too deep and drown the swimmers if careless? Think the swimmers can open the top hatch from the inside? I'd be more nervous of that than of being close to that croc. How skilled/attentive is the crane operator?

Huh. And I thought it was cruel for my daughter to wave a chunk of steak in front of my dog's nose and then pull it away.....

Do you have to pay extra for Miss Bikini Chick to go in the tank with you? And can you pay for the special "Down Under" service? :P

Wait just a munching moment, a couple of weeks ago it was a polar bear climbing into an arctic bus, now we have people being served up to salties. . . Is this some sort of conspiracy to turn us all into "long pigs" (or "hairless goats" if you are smaller)???

Feces = Secreted when in close proximity to something that can bite you in half.

It's not that scary. After all, you can hear it coming for you by the ticking inside of it.

I think it'd be thrilling, but not that scary. Fun-scary, maybe.

We have some big gators around here but holy hell. That thing is huge. I bet if we had those our kids wouldn't be so careless water skiing past the ones on the river banks.

Oh no...don't even LOOK at the animals, it's cruel and unfair.

dunno--when I saw the pic, I just thought--that's just mean.

I have that kind of sensitivity towards animals, cloud. I've been deep water scuba diving, and one of the training sessions I took was underwater naturalism (or some such title.) One of the things I remember was my instructor talking about natural environment, and how if you pick up a tiny little creature and move him a few feet, you have just separated him from what is natural to him. Maybe a few miles without GPS in human terms.

I don't know. The way that croc is clinging to the box it looks like he's trying to hump it.

So if a big one establishes itself in a piece of river too close to human habitation, it gets trapped and relocated to a crocodile farm/tourist trap, where it lives out it's days as shown here. I wish they'd lower bikini chicks in glass cages into my living room.
