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.

    • Yeah! That was scary.
    • No - like crocodiles could get into my toilet.
    • Not yet, but it would be cool if I did.

    Duh.  Even though men may tend to be taller,stronger and all other things you all pointed out you can't say women SHOULD not have equal rights. They may have created differently but we do things which men do with ease and sometimes even better than them.  Discrimination even now?  WOMEN AND MEN SHOULD BE TREATED EQUALLY.
