A Bright Orange Croc?

How does a crocodile turn bright orange? If you ask Snappy, the 8-foot crocodile at Roaming Reptiles animal park in Australia, he'll tell you the secret is attacking a water filter in your enclosure.
"Our guess is that it is something in the water such as iron or tannins from leaves or some red algae, that oxidises when it dries," Webb said.

Keepers say he's still healthy and acting as lively as ever, so it seems like he's just trying out a new look more than anything else.
