African Dwarf Crocodile

Saltwater Crocodile


Crocodiles are large, heavily armored reptiles with long snouts and powerful tails. They can be distinguished from alligators because their snouts are longer and the fourth mandible protrudes when the mouth is closed. They can be very territorial in the breeding season. They have well developed senses of hearing, sight and smell. The 14 species of crocodile can be found in Asia, from Iran to Indonesia and New Guinea, Australia, Africa, Southern Mexico to northern South America, Caribbean, southern Florida, and Madagascar.
