i’m sure people know this, but for those of you who don’t, alligators and crocodiles (this is a gator) have some of the most powerful jaws on earth—if they’re biting down. their muscles are made to clamp and hold while its body twists, taking down its prey and (typically) drowning it. however, they have next to no opening power, meaning this crab’s claw has rendered this gator almost powerless

We can use this to calculate the average body shapes of alien life if we know the planetary conditions

The moon looks fun!

Also that second faller in the third one seems to be watching the other two race away. Poor, square-headed dinosaur thing.
