Not only that: crows are among the smartest of birds, fully as smart as
many parrots (though not so smart as the African grey parrot). Even the
smartest known dinosaur - Troodon - would have been an idiot compared
to a crow.

Actually it is probably the safest moment to approach a croc, as
that is when they really don't care about much - they are very torpid.
