Repeat but Might Come in Handy

The crocodile is surprisingly fast on land. If pursued by a crocodile, a person should run in a zigzag motion, for the crocodile has little or no ability to make sudden changes of direction.

I remember Mythbusters trying to do this myth. The crocodiles and alligators (can't remember which) would not cooperate.

We, actually our dog, was once stalked by an alligator - we think. We were at New Iberia in Louisiana at the Tabasco nature park. We walked up on the viewing platform and spotted an alligator across the lake. Then we started admiring the egrets. Next thing we knew the alligator was below us and smiling at our old yellow lab. Spooky...
