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:

1. deep-sea food webs
2. ancient food webs (because maybe some species eating the gators had ancestors that ate now-extinct reptiles like mosasaurs)
3. how materials created on land sustain and impact ocean food webs

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