This is the story of a poor crocodile that is currently recuperating after undergoing reconstructive surgery. The 10-foot crocodile has been operated at Miami's Metrozoo facility after having its head crushed by a car in the Florida Keys last year.

With its snout hanging limp, the distressed animal has not eaten for three months!
During the operation that lasted four hours two metal rods were placed between its eyes extending down to the bridge of its nose, and another on each side.

Forty-one metal screws were drilled into its hide, keeping the skull and snout together. With all this metal in its face the staff has nicknamed it RoboCroc.
