Knowing that I like music and that I hate alligators, Dave of A Different Lemming sent me this article, which deals with the curious effect that a B flat note played two octaves below a middle C (i.e. a really LOW note) has on alligators.

While I found the notion that a particular man-made tone could trigger instinctive responses in reptiles that have been on the planet for roughly 30 million years, I could not help but think how much I would like to visit that place with a high-powered rifle and with a master tuba player in tow.
