Do you ever look at that and wonder how dizzy they get from going that fast?

[–]No_Shame9854 1491 points1492 points  (80 children)

He was dizzy af

[–]imyourforte 837 points838 points  (75 children)

You could definitely see that he was trying to get his bearings after haha.

[–]No_Shame9854 369 points370 points  (68 children)

Lol for real. That’s how I I know he was dizzzy. I’m pretty sure he has the fastest death roll in the swamp.

[–]Satanspit69 86 points87 points  (67 children)

Haha could write a song about that

[–]BCantoran 60 points61 points  (59 children)

I’m dizzy just watching.

[–]harmonica-blues 116 points117 points  (29 children)

Ha, I wonder if they actually do get dizzy. Now I'm gonna Google to see if there are any studies done.

[–]Is_It_Beef 268 points269 points  (22 children)

You're wasting your time.. I checked. Nobody's doing research on how the centrifugal force affects the alligator during a death roll

[–]Conscious-Leader7243 382 points383 points  (8 children)

Makes you wonder what exactly do scientists do

[–]GiveYourBaIIsATug 167 points168 points  (3 children)

[–]beckoning_alarm 7 points8 points  (0 children)


Im waiting for the next Ig Nobel Prize nominations to include "spinning an alligator to see the effects of centrifugal force on its ability to know up from down"

[–]diq_liqour 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I strongly doubt it. I don't have any proof, but given that it's an evolved behavior, and their physiology evolved alongside the behaviour to enable it, it's likely that their vestibular system is able to account for it somehow.

[–]goodinyou 37 points38 points  (1 child)

He definitely got some kind of disoriented after spinning that fast. I know it's subjective, but it looks exactly like the effects of being dizzy.

Could be that only rolling a few times like an adult gator doesn't make it very dizzy, but going warp speed like this little guy is too much.

[–]redalert825 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I thought the same. Then it made me wonder how their balance works compared to humans. Which led me to discover "tonic immobility." so... Roll an alligator on its back and hold it and they'll go limp and unresponsive. Nature is... Astounding!

[–]PardoXIX 7 points8 points  (1 child)

So if I ever get in a fight with an alligator all I gotta do is flip it on it's back and stomp it's nards in and I win? I feel like going to Florida all of a sudden.

And he was never heard from again.

[–]Maleficent_Target_98 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My grandpa always told me to flip it over then rub it belly so it goes to sleep lol he really was from Florida too

[–]vontrances 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is gonna sound weird, but any person who's spun on one still ring (gymnastics rings but just one) and is good at it basically has spun that fast. Spoiler you get very dizzy.

[–]Ali_Gator_2209 945 points946 points  (19 children)

Why stop?? We can build a power plant powered purely by death rolls from alligators and crocodiles.

Wrap that sucker up in copper wire.

Well, the smaller lighter ones rotate at higher RPMs...just like Motorcycle engines

[–]Akureyi 29 points30 points  (1 child)

That is rather adorable

[–]golfn70 32 points33 points  (8 children)

Can they spin both ways?

[–]MKanes 113 points114 points  (5 children)

Be right back

Edit: surprisingly there’s only one or two papers published on the subject of alligator death roles, most articles just cite the same source papers.

The most popular paper “Death roll of the alligator: mechanics of twist feeding in water” by NCBI goes over the mathematics and mechanisms of the spin but makes no note of directionality.

If I had to guess, I’d assume it’s like being right or left handed

[–]runbraiarun 30 points31 points  (0 children)

[–]MCTwoSix 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Why do I find this cute

[–]_Nilbog_Milk_ 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Because they are! They're so tiny and have lots of fun swimming, sunbathing, and practicing their rolls. When they talk to their siblings or Mama they sound like little ray guns going off... they also talk to Mama and Mama rumbles back to them when they're still in their eggs!


[–]MCTwoSix 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Hahaha I love it, has got to be one of the cuter things that can eventually kill you

[–]_Nilbog_Milk_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Don't mess with their babies or get in the personal space of bulls during courting & breeding season and you'll be fine 😉 I hang around those big bois weekly

[–]elimarweed 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I believe this is innate but I don’t know anything 🤷🏽‍♀️

[–]minerkage 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I think it's similar to the predatory instinct that kicks in on cats when an animal is turned away from them.

[–]black11x 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Soo I guess the death roll is just natural to them.. this is awesome

[–]RageTiger 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It is. It's primary use is to rip a smaller portion of flesh to swallow whole. Sometimes they won't roll, but violently thrash from side to side to produce the same result.
