A crocodile that mysteriously appeared in a lake on the Greek island of Crete last year has died, said regional water management official Vangelis Mamangakis.
An initial veterinary inspection of the two-meter (6′-6″) reptile pointed to death from cold exposure, said Mamangakis.
Crete was hit with a “cold snap” in February, with temperatures in some areas falling close to freezing.
The article doesn’t mention it, but another “cold snap” blanketed of Crete with snow in January of this year.
Have you ever noticed that the media likes to downplay unusual cold by calling it a “cold snap”?
