Why is the black alligator endangered?

An alligator over seven feet long (almost three meters) was found this Saturday in a home in Davie, South Florida (USA), by a family having breakfast in the backyard and had no other option to remove it than to alert the local authorities.

The two hunters used a rope and a long pole to immobilize the large reptile, and then wrapped its mouth with duct tape before finally removing it from the house and loading it into a pickup truck with the help of a third person.

According to the same media, the alligator, whose age was not specified, will be taken to one of the conservation farms that FWC has in West Palm Beach (southeast) or Naples (southwest).

Marine crocodile, the largest of the reptiles.

How long was the Lolong crocodile?

"Lolong", the largest crocodile in the world measures 6 meters and weighs one ton. The Lolong crocodile, famous for its large size, was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the largest captive crocodile in the world, according to EFE news agency.

Liolaemus magellanicus

Lolong (b. 1963 - d. February 10, 2013) was the largest captive crocodile in the world. It was a saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) and had a length of 6.17 meters long and a mass of 1075 kilograms, making it one of the largest crocodiles ever measured from snout to tail in the world.[1][2][3][4][5]

In November 2011, Australian crocodile expert, Dr. Adam Britton of National Geographic, sedated and measured Lolong and confirmed him as the largest crocodile ever caught and kept in captivity.[1][2]

Lolong died in captivity at approximately 8 p.m. on February 10, 2013 from pneumonia.[7] His skin and head were stored by a team of taxidermists for future display of those parts of the animal at the National Museum.

The NGO Animal Kingdom Foundation Inc, with the cooperation of PETA, had urged the local government of Bunawan to return Lolong to the creek in barangay Nueva Era, where the giant reptile had been captured. However, after a lengthy debate, Bunawan Mayor Edwin "Cox" Elorde and barangay residents opposed the animal's release, stating that it would endanger the lives of people living near the site.

What is the most dangerous crocodile in the world?

Their body temperature depends on the air temperature. At low temperatures they increase their body temperature by basking in the sun, although they can also increase their temperature by tigmothermy.[4] They exhibit opportunistic thermoregulatory behavior, taking full advantage of sunny days. Unlike other lizards of cold climates, L. magellanicus does not show noticeable color changes in order to improve sunlight absorption.[4] In the presence of predators, L. magellanicus is a very sensitive lizard.

In the presence of predators these lizards move towards burrows or nearby bushes.[5] In case of capture they show caudal autotomy, i.e. they shed their tails. The severed tail keeps moving and distracts the predator. The lizard then regenerates the tail.[3] The lizard's habitat includes two protected areas.

Its habitat includes two protected areas: Los Glaciares National Park, in the province of Santa Cruz (Argentina),[7] and Torres del Paine National Park,[8] in the Magallanes region (Chile). They can also be found during the summer season in Pali Aike National Park (Chile).

In 1943, Barnum Brown and Erich Maren Schlaikjer, with new and more complete material, established the genus Pachycephalosaurus and made "T. wyomingensis" their type species. They also named two more species, Pachycephalosaurus grangeri and Pachycephalosaurus reinheimeri. P. grangeri is based on AMNH 1696, a nearly complete skull from the Hell Creek Formation of Ekalaka, Carter County, Montana. P. reinheimeri was based on what is now DMNH 469, a dome with some associated remains from the Lance Formation in Corson County, South Dakota. These other two species were subsequently considered Synonyms of P. wyomingensis by 1983.

At the 2007 annual meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, Jack Horner of Montana State University-Bozeman presented evidence that Dracorex and Stygimoloch may be juvenile forms of Pachycephalosaurus. In 2015, some pachycephalosaurid material and a domed parietal attributable to Pachycephalosaurus were discovered in the Scollard Formation, Alberta, Canada, implying that dinosaurs of this era were cosmopolitan and did not have discrete faunal provinces.
