I love gators, don't know why.

I rely on "swamp people" for my alligator knowledge, and I've never seen tree gators on that show.

I'm calling fakesies.

Habitat of crocs

BS story. Crocs do not live in Pearl River County Mississippi. Alligators do. Separate species. Nice try.

Crocs climbing trees. Reminds me of this...from the movie The In-Laws.

Vince: Sheldon, it was unbelievable. I saw things...They have tsetse flies down there the size of eagles. Really.
In the evening, I would stand in front of my hut and watch in horror as these giant flies would pick children off the ground and carry them away.

Oh, it was an incredible sight. Peasants screaming...chasing these flies down the road, waving brooms. You can imagine the pathetic quality of this. Waving these crudely fashioned brooms at these enormous flies...
...as they carried their children off to almost certain death.

Vince: Flies. Natives had a name for them. "José Grecos de Muertos."

"Flamenco dancers of death."

The enormous flies flapping slowly away into the sunset. Small brown babies clutched in their beaks.

Sheldon: Beaks? Flies with beaks?

Vince: A sight I'll never forget. I was stunned. Appalled.

Sheldon: What did you do?

Vince: What did I do?

Sheldon: As a consultant, what did you do about the flies?

Vince: Sadly, there is very little you can do because of the tremendous red tape in the bush.

Sheldon: There's red tape in the bush?

Vince: Enormous red tape, Sheldon. These flies, for example. They're protected against pilferage under the provisions of the Guacamole Act of 1937.

meat0918: I love gators, don't know why.

They are dinosaurs, maybe that's why you love them. And I think it's amazing that they haven't changed much in millions of years.

It says "crocodilians" not crocodiles.  Crocodilia includes both the Alligator and Crocodile families, and the Gharial (looks like a croc but with a long thin snout).

Tree crocs. Which are crocs in trees.

Crocotree would be a tree/croc hybrid and even SciFy can make that work.

I find that alligators sport fantastic smiles. Crocodiles, not so much, but alligators appear to be happy the way their mouths are crooked. Look at how happy, that thing is! You'll never be that happy.

The savagery of a crocodile. The irresistable allure of sponge cake and cream filling. Coming this summer to SyFy, a new original film...

[cut to movie audio]

[terrified screams]

"Haley! Oh my God! These...these...Oh my God! HALEY!!!"

SyFy, please. They dropped any pretense of science in their fiction long ago.
