What a croc

Wildlife managers in Florida are experimenting with magnets as a way to keep crocodiles out of urban areas.

The endangered crocodiles have splendid navigational systems. Often, when they're moved to wilderness areas, they go right back to where they were, even if it's in the middle of human neighborhoods.

Some scientists believe crocs navigate by tuning in to Earth's gravitational field, and they think strapping magnets on either side of a crocodile's head will confuse it enough that it'll stay where wildlife officials put it.

My question is this: If one of the magnets comes off, will the croc swim in circles?
