The Red Sea is croc-free. Crocodiles need turgid water, which comes
from rivers, estuaries or swamps. The Red Sea has none of these.
I've posted this many times.
The plausible reasons for not remaining in trees on land are:
(a) food (b) safety from land-based nocturnal predators.
In other words: La Dolce Vita.
Curiously billions of homo.sapiens.sapiens regard this as paradise
on earth: a full belly, sun, sea, sex and sand. They go to great
trouble and expense to recapitulate the experience. Funny that.
