Ok, i'm using the term "news" a little loose here, as this was original posted on National Geographic site in January 2014, nearly two years ago, but I've only just come across it and I think it is awesome! The place a camera on an alligator and see what it does... :) Check out the video! :)
Jan. 15, 2014—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.
