    That’s great. Maybe I should book my next cruise with the Navy.

    This is so sad. The journal ‘article’ on tree climbing alligators has virtually no data other than anecdotal reports, provides no serious explanation for the evolutionary maintenance of the behavior, and was published as a note. Only the pr team made this meaningful. Please stop hyping terrible behavioral science.
