The Mad Scientist: Crocodile Hunter

It is I, the mad scientist! Join me and my minions as we study some of God’s amazing creatures; learning tons of fun facts along the way.


Mad_ScientistUnless you believe the urban legend of alligators dwelling in our sewers, there are very few places to see these remarkable creatures in Southern California. Excepting a trip to the zoo, one has never been spotted in our neck of the woods. Once, we did have an animal expert bring a baby alligator to a library event; that was fun!

Given these conditions, and the fact that owning one is simply out of the question, the next best option is to hit the internet to learn more! Our venue of choice: YouTube!

Using YouTube, let’s watch a few episodes of Crocodile Hunter! (While this man might have been a little unwise in his personal choices, he was certainly brilliant when it came to his knowledge of alligators and crocodiles.)

To add a little creativity to the day, we can also do this fun craft. Using basic materials most of us already have on hand, making these fun animals should be fairly simple.

Thus ends our ‘Mad Scientist’ lessons for the summer. We’ve learned about some amazing creatures and added a fun new pet to our household. We hope you’ve had as much fun as we have! Join us next year for more summer fun activities!
