Robo Croc

This Lucky Croc Got a Second Chance

A crocodile whose skull was crushed by a car had its face rebuilt by plastic surgeons in the U.S.

The medical team at Miami's Metro Zoo fixed the croc's face by bolting four steel plates to its skull using a grand total of 41 screws!

The doctors that worked on the reptile say the operation was a big success. Now the three-meter-long crocodile can open its mouth properly for the first time since it was found by the roadside after being run over.

    • No - like crocodiles could get into my toilet.

But in the context of teens not being mature enough to understand this, and saying them in public, swear words in public are deemed harassment if done in such a way. So, swear words are reserved for the purpose of harassment in our society, but they are not inherently wrong since they are said as "sentence enhancers" by celebrities and among friends. However, I use the former to make my case because my original statement was on teens not understanding the difference and using them in public, which could lead to harassment. No that's ok, I already got it down
