Monster cannibal crocodile feasts on last two girlfriends
Northern Territory News ^ | December 10th, 2009 | NIGEL ADLAM

IGOR has everything a self-respecting crocodile needs to be a good lover - he's big, he's strong and he's dashingly handsome.

But the 4.62m saltie doesn't seem to know the difference between love-making and dinner.

He killed his last two girlfriends..

And that was enough for the Darwin Crocodile Farm - Igor had to go.

"I don't know why he attacked the girls...But it does happen..."

Yeah, maybe Tiger should visit Australia so he can get eaten.

I hope Elin gets the whole 300 million dollars that is due her, according to the formula in their prenup. She can use some of the money to find a real man.

Would this be what they call an “evolutionary dead end”?

There is a similar Colorado rumor : Just How Many Democrats Did Alfred E. Packer Eat?

I think, according to the Judge at his trial, Packer ate most of the Democrats in Hinsdale County.

The Judge seemed most upset as he was also a democrat...as the story goes.

At Nike headquarters the buildings are named for different sports stars. The building holding the theatre and where large receptions are held is called Tiger Woods.

I've spent time in Gunnison, I saw the movie 'Ravenous' but truthfully never knew about Packer.

Just spent half an hour learning things I never really wanted to know.

So, what's next....'Liver eatin' Johnson?

Getting stuck in the mountains unprepared in bad weather makes some people with no morals very crazy : Not just the Donner party.

Recently, we had the ‘miracle in the mountians’ but they were rescued before it got that ugly.

It's just a big misunderstanding. He said "Hey baby, how'd you like to get it on?" and she said "Eat me."

I once read an extremely interesting and informative article about survival during famine, it remarked about how hyenas in Africa survived famines and droughts without ill effects.

In the article, the tale of a snowed in Army party trapped in the Sierras, much like the Donner party, was central,. They went through their rations, tried hunting to no avail and after a few weeks began slaughtering their mules and horses for food.

Even though they had plenty of meat to eat, they were still starving. Seems that the emaciated mules and horses had no fat left and the soldiers were consuming extremely lean meat.....all protein. They continued to starve and suffered from 'protein poisoning'. They were half mad by the time they were rescued.

Back to the hyenas. Their survival resulted from their tremendous jaw strength which enabled them to crack open bones and eat the marrow inside. The marrow had both fat and protein that was sustaining.

I'm currently looking for survival rates of vegetarians in similar circumstances....I'll get back to you when I find something.

Good book called ‘Crow Killer’ if you’re interested in Liver Eatin’ Johnson. Maybe you read it already.

I liked Ravenous, although the writers’ agenda was to ridicule the idea of Manifest Destiny as stated by them.

I was just at the Packer site in August and have read a few versions of the tale.

You and I must be on the same wavelengths.

I'm not too sure about that. However, I'm very fond of sashimi.

Appropriately named croc farm. Igor didn't die but he was on his way to eating any possibility of passing on his genes.

In the mountains, I always have my sidearm (at the very least) and my knife. I am enough of an outdoorsman to be prepared but if it came down to it and people started eating people, I would be in the "ate who" column not the "eaten by" column.

Survival rates for vegetarians? Most of the dinosaurs were vegetarians. Look what happened to them. Once all of the vegetarians were gone, the carnivores starved.

A friend and I got lost in the Sierras once, several years ago, In winter.

We walked and walked and walked (on snowshoes), hoping that our car was over the next ridge. It wasn't.

We were reduced to eating snow when our water ran out. I got frostbite from using my mouth to melt snow. After a while the muscles in my legs just stopped working, and all I wanted to do was lay down and sleep.

This was near Ice House Reservior off of highway 80. We could even hear the baleful moan of the big rigs as they geared down for the hill, the sound faintly bouncing off the mountains in an eerie echo. Finally, at 11pm, we were picked up by the local Search And Rescue folks who just happened to be in the area on their monthly manouvers.

I felt like an idiot, but it was a great growth experience and I truly learned from it.

Way back in my youth, there an alligator at Silver Springs Park that they called “Old Stub Tail”. Seems that at one feeding time, some meet fell in his tail and Chomp. Another gator bit his tail off. I remember the guide saying that alligator’s don’t have a sense of taste. Like I said, way back.

You’re right, fellow Coloradoan. I’ve seen Packer’s grave in Littleton. Covered with a big slab of concrete, as you might know.

We had -16 degrees here in Durango last night. We’d really be freezing without Global Warming./s
