Crocodile's blood good for you... I would imagine its better for the crocodile :tongue2:
I hope the research turns out well, of course from this point, it will be 12+ years befor we see any real out come.
Perhaps they also should check out the blood to our dear dragon, the Komodo varan.
As I've heard, it isn't particularly assiduous in its use of toothbrush, so rotting pieces of meat filled with bacteria are commonly found wedged in between its teeth (I haven't checked whether this is true myself, though).
This rather bad oral hygiene is perhaps defensible if it has a very strong immune system, although I won't invite them to any parties unless they clean themselves properly.
