At least 280 crocodiles escaped a Mexican refuge after Hurricane Karl caused heavy flooding in the area. Authorities are sending crocodile experts to the area in an attempt to round up the escaped reptiles. From the article: "The governor of Veracruz told reporters about 280 crocodiles were missing from the reserve in La Antigua, although some media put the number of reptiles at closer to 400." I can't wait for the movie makers at Syfy to hear about this.
The reason that every major university maintains a department of
mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
