Which is why there’s an increased chance that they’ll see you later.
Yes they can - though most in the wild do not. However, there is a saltwater crocodile in northern Australia named Cassius - who is documented to be 113, I think, by now. he's 16ft long, and magnificent. I would love to visit him - being as crocodilians (which includes alligators and crocodiles) are some of my very favorite creatures. One of the big reasons I moved to Florida !
You mean like see ya later Alligator -- after while Crocodile. I think it is interesting that some reptiles can live longer than humans. The sea turtle can live around 300 years I believe. I saw a science show that had a theory that longevity had to do with how long a species was reproductively viable.
It was interesting that many of the centenarians had never had children. Lends credence to the old adage that "you kids are giving me gray hair"!
