    1. You’d be surprised at what can pass through a reptile’s gut without causing an intestinal blockage. Plus alligator (it’s an alligator with the shoe in its mouth) stomach juice is very strongly acidic; don’t know how a croc (the shoe, that is) would hold up against it.

      1. Cheers for the tip! I took a very enjoyable trip to Sweden last year, including some time spent in Stockholm. But I’m afraid I have no immediate plans to return so I think I’ll have to pass.

    1. “croc” refers to the shoe. Or “clog”, according to some people.
      The thing eating the croc is clearly a Tiktok-o-dial, whose fossil ancestor Tiktalik was recently discovered in the Canadian Arctic.
