Nile crocodiles showing up in South FL
Several Nile crocodiles, the kind that will eat humans, have been seen recently in South Florida. Given the danger, federal wildlife officials have granted Florida's shoot-to-kill request.
Wildlife biologist Joe Wasilewski has hauled many scaly creatures out of South Florida lakes, canals and marshes over the years. But the snappish four-footer he snared at the Redland Fruit & Spice Park was an unsettling surprise. It was a young crocodile, but not the typically timid native species.
