  • What the heck is that supposed to mean? If you know anything about what microwaves are, that is a confusing statement.

    Is that a unique property to alligators, or something?

    Is this assuming there's no water in their skin?

  • I wouldn't worry about it. This site is to trivia what The Onion is to real news.

  • Seems like Factropolis is not checking on its facts again. Stick an alligator (steak) in a microwave and it'll cook!

  • Alligator skin is different from alligator meat. The skin can peel off an alligator just like a banana, and the meat is underneath, so the skin itself probably has a chemical property that reflects microwave radiation

  • Why are you guys repeating facts that you had from November 2008? I already know these facts already.
