Another television cite: I recently was able to actually *watch* one
of the television programs I mention in my weekly mail: "The River
Dinosaur," about the Nile Crocodile. Featured was an *adult* animal
that climbed several feet up a tree to snatch a prey carcass from a
juvenile jaguar. (The croc then lost most of the carcass to a hyena
at water's edge, which then promptly lost it to a lion!)

Arboreal juvenile Anglo crocs? There will always be an England.
