Crocodile Hunter

We've all seen them, either languishing on the shelves of video shops, or in their natural habitat as "Original Movies" on the SciFi Channel; the modern American monster movie. With a cast full of D-Listers and/or complete unknowns and/or ex-porn stars and/or Bruce Campbell, an anaemic script and really dodgy cgi monsters, it's SciFi's decision to show these incessantly but not pick up Doctor Who that makes many a science fiction fan shake their head in bafflement and sadness.

But it turns out that these films are in fact documentary evidence of true events! Witness Alligator vs Python: Whoever wins, we get cheap purses!

Thanks to the gang at areyougoingtoeatthat for, er, that.

    Thanks, Professor, for that scientific tidbit.

    Yeah, if an animal with no legs or arms can win a fight with and then swallow a freakin' alligator whole? I'm staying away.
