Alligators were dropped to the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico in February 2019 for the first-ever experiment on what eats reptiles in the world’s deep oceans.

This research will help us learn more about:

  • deep-sea food webs
  • ancient food webs (because maybe some species eating the gators ate now-extinct reptiles like mososaurs)
  • how materials created on land sustain and impact ocean food webs

This research is by woodfall scientists Craig McClain, Clifton Nunnally, and River Dixon.
