Croc Update

Crocodile removed from endangered species list - Nightly News with Brian Williams - MSNBC.com: "HOMESTEAD, Fla. - For wildlife officials, today is an important milestone and a sign of success. After three decades, the American crocodile goes off the federal endangered species list. It happened because science, government and industry agreed to protect a prehistoric animal that was about to go away.

The ancient predator had become a victim of development, habitat loss and hunting.

'We're doing something good, and they are responding,' Joe Wasilewski, a wildlife biologist, says."
