June 14, 2007: guy dresses as croc to study them



xoxoxoBruce forwards this Daily Mail article which explains that the gentleman above, Dr. Brady Barr, clearly insane, has built this croc-like-box to study a group of Nile crocs.

Quote:
The zoologist adopted his bizarre outfit in the hope of getting closer to a colony of Nile crocodiles, which can grow up to 20ft.

His disguise was a prosthetic head attached to the front of a protective metal cage covered with canvas and a generous plastering of hippo dung to mask his human scent.

It was 13ft long - average Nile size. The head was made of glass fibre, while the frame of the body was aluminium covered with a sheet of Kevlar body armour.

This made me laugh. Not very realistic, though. Here's a better costume:



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jun 14 03:36 PM

I don't think that outfit would have helped him much, if the Mama Hippo had decided to stomp him into the Crock poo.



elSicomoro  Thursday Jun 14 03:40 PM

It looked and sounded ridiculous to me at first, but now I'm impressed with the construction of the replica and Barr's plan.



Spexxvet  Thursday Jun 14 03:42 PM



Oh..... Croc costume.



Shawnee123  Thursday Jun 14 03:43 PM

lol, Spexx. I think I"m going to go with that idea. I'll get me one of those costumes you posted, then go live amongst them so I can study them.

Watch out - they bite!


HungLikeJesus  Thursday Jun 14 04:21 PM

He has a crocbox, but if he has to pee he'll need a crocpot.

artemis05  Thursday Jun 14 04:59 PM

it reminds me of jim carey in ace ventura (2?) when he was in a rhino costume and it overheated so he had to climb out its ass... hahaha.... delicious poop jokes



Cloud  Thursday Jun 14 05:02 PM

no, reminds me of the faux-gorilla in Trading Places.



BigV  Thursday Jun 14 05:30 PM

If this had been the Friday IoTD, we could be swapping recipies for the "other" other white meat.

Clearly insane--understatement of the day. Did he not get the memo on how kevlar works? Um, crushing forces (well over 2000 pounds) are not affected in any way by kevlar. Tearing forces, meh, maybe. So he'll be mashed to a bloody pulp, but he'll only make one puddle. Adorned with hippo poo. Sheesh, this guy gives crazy people a bad name.



Spexxvet  Thursday Jun 14 05:47 PM

I hope one of the male crocs doesn't mate with him.



Shawnee123  Thursday Jun 14 06:11 PM

He loves him. He wants to date him, and kiss him, and have a million babies.

croc 1: oh jeez... don't look now. here comes that poser

Why? Happens all the time.



richlevy  Friday Jun 15 08:02 PM

All I could think of was Ace Ventura and the fake rhino.



HungLikeJesus  Friday Jun 15 08:34 PM

LJ, is that what you mean by tail posting?



rkzenrage  Saturday Jun 16 07:18 AM

Yznhymr  Saturday Jun 16 06:17 PM

Cloud  Saturday Jun 16 06:22 PM

I knew a prof who studied these electric catfish from Africa. The fish communicated with these low-power electric fields. No one had ever recorded them mating, so this prof and his grad student brought a bunch back, and spent a lot of time and effort simulating their habitat. The fish finally seemed ready to mate, and they had all this sophisticated electric-detection gear to record the courtship behavior.

And then the male started to sing to the female. With these low-pitched croaking sounds.

And they didn't have a tape recorder.

All the professor said was, "It's time for beer."

Rule Number One of Animal Behavior: The animal will do what it wants to do, when it wants to do it, in the manner you least expect it to.

I am always available to you for close study, Shawnee. Just in case you forgot.


xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Jun 17 09:48 PM

And the costume wouldn't cost her a dime.



skysidhe  Monday Jun 18 11:18 PM
