Pity there were no Scots around to point out that's no crocodile, it's obviously Nessie.

Teeth or GTFO

the deadly wooden beam-odile !

It's all a very cunning adaptation by the Greater British Crocodile - being able to disguise itself as a log of wood. It's rather amazing - not only is it shaped like a log, it stiffly bobs up and down in the water in exactly the same manner as a piece of wood as well!

That's what happens when you flush saplings down the toilet.

Were there any athletes around?

Here's the first of three videos on how to make a life-size articulated wood crocodile that is truly spectacular! Jeff Sloan specializes in this type of woodwork, and gives a great step-by-step. I recommend watching through all three - or at least sneaking a peek at the finished animal. Had it been snaking down the river, people might have seriously wondered!

Thing is, the suspension bridge is about 250 feet above the river, so it's pretty hard to see anything, let alone a log.

What rolls down stairs alone or in pairs
Rolls over your neighbor's dog?
What's great for a snack and fits on your back?
It's log, log, log!
