Today we launched CrocBITE, the Worldwide Crocodilian Attack Database. It's designed as a learning, archival and research tool to hopefully help address human-crocodile conflict issues, human safety, and therefore crocodilian conservation.

Two new CrocLog Podcast episodes in one week. Episode 12 interviews Subir Chowfin about gharial conservation in Corbett Tiger Reserve, India. http://t.co/wH6w3sTo

Episode 13 chats with Python Hunter Shawn Heflick about Christmas Croc Fest 2012, raising funds for the Critically Endangered Orinoco crocodile in Colombia. http://t.co/Ks30QgGp

Episode 10 of the CrocLog Podcast is here at last. It's worth the wait because it features an interview with the awesome Rom Whitaker. Brandon and I also discuss croc bite forces, National Park corruption, gharial and American crocodile recovery, Nile crocs biting things, and tidbits about Swimming with Crocodiles.

Have you ever wanted to know just how hard giant crocodiles can bite? Using data form the recent paper on crocodilian bite force, I calculated just how much force Lolong could put behind his bite.
