CrocLog Podcast - Episode 9

Episode 9 of the CrocLog Podcast is here. Brandon was having some quality issues with his mic but I managed to make it sound almost normal. That should be fixed for next time.

Brandon revisits Cherie and Vince Rose of ACES (American Crocodile Education Sanctuary) to get an update on their uphill battle working on American crocodiles in Belize, we discuss the latest news stories including another potential new species, one of the oldest “modern croc” fossils ever found, finding crocodiles where you don’t expect to find them, the recent spate of crocodile attacks, and a discussion of a TV show where they try and noose a large Nile crocodile underwater.

Below you'll find links to the podcast and the main stories.
