    So older story, but this one blows my mind. Apparently every now and then, crocodiles are being caught in Florida. Not pussy American crocodiles. I'm talking about Nile crocs.

    These motherfuckers.

    Yeah those things. So I guess private keepers have either released them on purpose or they escaped, but the fact remains that they are in our waters at this very minute. If we caught a few, how many more haven't we caught? Between these things and Burmese pythons, Florida is in the middle of a takeover.

    FL needs a good piranha infestation and some killer bees and that'll be a wrap, son.

    Reminds me of Lake Placid. I blame the elderly.

    Yea it’s crazy. We also have a decent amount of wild monkeys in central Florida now too. People keep releasing wild animals into the ecosystem, mucking everything up. Well, mucking it up more than it is already

    Piranhas aren't very dangerous from what I've seen. They do eat scraps of meat, but they don't really attack people like that.

    And I'm pretty sure they already have Africanized bees, which are horribly aggressive. They've been found in Louisiana and are definitely in Eastern Texas. Not a long trip from there to Florida.

    Not going to lie, all the exotic wild animals are starting to attract me to that crazy place. Even if it is underwater at the moment. We had some Japanese macaques and camels in Texas, so I'm definitely not surprised Florida is filled with crazy stuff.

    Not too long ago they were not here at all. Crocs aren’t native. Idiots are though

    It’s really not a great thing though, honestly. Most are very invasive, and are quite the nuisance for both man and beast.

    Still, it’s cool to see all these animals able to survive here.

    Humans are the ultimate invasive species, and house cats are already murdering every indigenous species they can get their paws on. At least in Florida I can have some fun amidst the chaos of globalization and the irreparable damage of the ecosystem.

    Florida always had pussy American crocodiles. Those things are basically harmless. Nile crocodiles take down wildebeest and fight with hippos. They kill about 200 people a year in Africa.

    Which region are cats not indigenous to?
    I know we have far too many, but I’ve never been to a place without them.

    I knew about alligators, but not crocs. That’s cool, In a way..

    It’s fun to take people kayaking and show them lazy gators. I get close to them and freak them out lol. They don’t give two shits about people.
