The perils of being an apex predator

It's easy to get dead. Every chase really needs to end in a meal.

Female crocs lay about 40 eggs in a year, and everyone likes to eat croc eggs; pigs, rats, whatever. Of the crocs that hatch 1% make it through to adulthood. Everyone likes to eat baby crocs; birds, fish, other crocs.

When it comes to mating time, as soon as a male begins to show interest in the females he's either killed by the dominant male or chased off.

But unlike in the natural kingdom, we can choose how we wish to play, in our lives. Unfortunately for the crocs, however, they can't say "I don't need this shit".
