"Narcoleptic" Alligator & Other Gators "Film" Their Day using 'Crittercams'

Fascinating stuff!...


Alligators in Florida—fitted with National Geographic Crittercams on their backs—give experts a peek into their daily lives. The video project is the first study to document alligator feeding rates over the course of a day. At one point, an alligator wearing a Crittercam seems to "pass out," sinking to the bottom where he remained for more than 90 minutes, only to recover and resurface. One researcher joked he might have been narcoleptic.
