There is no argueing that Crocs made a serious run for this year’s Summer of Fear championship. They were in the news with the first Crocodile attack in the US, along with numerous other stories and the Crocs even took a seriously cheeky shot at their competitors. So why do they miss out this year? Well for starters there is a lack of panic and to take the crown you need some panic, that is what Summer of Fear is all about. And then there is this story in which an Aussie shakes off a croc attack then downs a beer and drives himself to the hospital. You have to want it more than that crocs.
In what looks like a clear case of spite at how badly they are faring in the 2014 Summer of Fear competition crocodiles are taking out their aggravation on the hippos. This is actually pretty gutsy of them, hippos are no joke but in this case it looks like they won the day.
Ok, when we last saw our Crocs they were looking bad and getting beat up. What did I predict? Some attempts at a comeback by the Aussie Crocs, well we have the attempt and luckily for the tour guide, it was a miss.
The perennial Summer of Fear challenger the Crocodile takes a hit in this story where a man in Zimbabwe beats one up with his fists. The man and the boy he saved both ended up in the hospital, but Crocodiles are going to have a hard time establishing a climate of terror if word gets around that you punch them and get away. Look for the Aussie Crocs to try to eat some drunks to make up for this story.
Tool using crocodiles and alligators should be enough to give humanity some pause if nothing else is. I mean, sure, today it is sticks on the nose to bait in birds building their nests, but who says it stops there? What if they learn to work door knobs like velociraptors? What if they learn to use the phone and start doing phone sales? This could get ugly quick is what I am saying.
Crocs are making a serious run at this year’s Summer of Fear competition, although I have to say the Testicle Eating Fish will be hard to beat for some of us, today’s story is a kayaker trapped on an island by a 20′ foot Croc for over two weeks. No one gets eaten, but not for lack of trying by the croc.
