But in 1977, Turkey Point employees happened upon a crocodile nest in one of the then-new plant's cooling canals. The company set up a monitoring program to ensure they didn't hurt the animals (none has been found with any radiation), and this program has helped track their rebound, according to the AP. Crocodile monitoring entails capturing the beasts, microchipping them and weighing them. A video below shows what this work looks like. Florida Power has a team of biologists who keep tabs on the crocs — not exactly the type of job you would expect to find at a nuclear plant.
