- Fun Fact
- Sarcosuchus probably ate small dinosaurs that came to drink by the lakes in which it lived.
Al is ectothermic, or cold-blooded, which means he depends on the environment to keep him warm. Like sea turtles during the winter months, Al was caught in waters that dipped below 50 degrees causing him to become cold-stunned. When reptiles like Al are cold stunned, they become lethargic potentially leading to boat strikes, shock, pneumonia and even death as they cannot migrate to warmer weather.
Al arrived at CMA’s Rescue Center and will remain at CMA for observation prior to his release.
