Zoo Croc Eric Dies

Eric, the 60-year-old 5-meter crocodile exhibited at the Australian Reptile Park in Gosford, Australia, died from an infection exacerbated by problems due to recent storms. A feisty crocodile, Eric had killed females intended for mating and lost a rear leg in a dual with another male. (News source.)
