Some feel that seeing gators on land and in the water is bad enough; but gators and other crocodilians can also climb trees, and do so quite often.

Crocodilians don’t have the best adaptations for climbing but despite this, they are seen with regularity in trees.  This behavior is usually seen with juvenile animals that are less than a few years old.  Just a quick google search for videos and images result in hundreds of pictures and videos of crocodilians climbing things. So, if you ever wondered how these guys seem to get from pond to pond despite fences, now you now.
