Hank, R. I. P.

Jungle Island's 'crocosaurus' dies at 47 - Miami-Dade - "He was 2,000 pounds of muscle and scaly flesh, believed to be the largest of his kind on this side of the planet. He dined on cold and raw chickens, their bones crackling as he crunched. He was an intimidating creature. So when he came to Miami, the dry-humored staff at Jungle Island marketed him by giving him a cute name.

Hank the Crocosaurus, among the most popular of the Watson Island tourist attraction's confection of unusual animals, was found motionless at the bottom of his pool Saturday. He was 47."
