UK Daily Mail: Now That’s Crocodile Rock!

The UK Daily Mail featured Vladimir Dinets, research assistant professor of psychology, in a story about predatory reptiles like crocodiles and alligators that sing to each other like birds do. The publication highlighted Dinets’ research that shows crocodiles and alligators have a talent for climbing trees. He observed crocodile species climbing trees on three continents–Australia, Africa and North America. Read the story here.

The paper also highlighted Dinets’ research demonstrating that crocodiles like to have fun by playing in streams, surfing currents, pushing sticks and riding on each other’s backs. The reptiles also appear to prefer objects that are pink and have been known to form bonds with other animals and play with them.
