Well coconuts kill far more people than crocs and alligators and sharks combined, so you need to pay attention all around you,

That is not going to give me much comfort next time I am fishing along the mangroves for red snapper. I would hate to have one drop out of the tree and into the boat.  I have never seen one in a tree, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Good question. Not sure. I do know that some of the oddities of various creatures can be hard to authenticate if it's specific to a sub-species, or, if it's not easily, frequently observed.

Croc's don't often like full-grown humans(though not unheard of) Babies and small children, pet dogs, etc... now that's a different story.

This just seems so unnecessary, they are terrifying enough without the ability to climb trees.

Glad I don't live in Florida anymore.....

It was just recently that I learned groundhogs can climb trees. Sort of contradicts their name.
