Are crocodiles stupid?

Crocodiles do have a very small brain, but we often see examples of their cleverness. Over the last couple of days, however, ‘Scarface’ has done some dumb things. When the shade caught up with his favourite sunbaking spot he slid down the bank towards the water and got his bottom jaw stuck under a mangrove root and then he had to slide around sideways and arch his back and eventually shook his head free. He slunk off under a tree looking a bit embarrassed. It could be explained away as an unfortunate accident but the very next day he did exactly the same thing.
