Crocodiles can do?

Animal scientists have discovered that a surprisingly large number of crocodiles can gallop at high speeds.

Since this problem is shared by eight different species, the researchers think that the lead for the first time, played at a crocodile’, old land-living ancestors’, which is also known as crocodylomorphs — according to The Guardian.

Scientists have studied the problem on the Pc. Augustine alligator farm and zoological park in Florida, where they recorded a video of the 42 animals of 15 species.

“We suspect that the jumping and galloping display of small animals, others have better acceleration and maneuverability, especially useful when you are out of harm’s way,” John Hutchinson, a specialist in evolutionary biomechanics, told the British newspaper. “It seems that the alligators, caimans, standing their ground instead of running away from it with the extreme of it.”

The creatures have been placed at the end of a runway, and then be able to turn over to the other side.

“Each and every animal in it was a different motivation,” said Hutchinson. “Some of them wouldn’t go at all. The crocodiles and alligators tend to just sit there and hiss and fight and fight.”
