“What manner o’thing is your crocodile?”: January 2018

Happy Boxing Day! We’ve brought you another crocodile mystery to open with your holiday goodies. This month’s mystery comes in two forms and appears in two places. Tell us, if you would, what these mysterious numbers suggest to you?



As usual, leave your thoughts and guesses in the comments below and we’ll be back in the new year with an answer.
