Crocodile

Must Try

Sebastian Acosta
Sebastian grew up on a goat farm in rural Wisconsin. He learned a lot about different animals as a youngster. While he is no longer in charge of feeding the kids, he still helps maintain the family farm on the weekends. In his free time, he travels the world and finds every opportunity to escape in nature.

This widely feared and often misunderstood aquatic reptile is known for its aggressiveness and powerful jaws. But there is so much more to learn about these amazing animals.

Crocodiles are one of the closest living links to the dinosaurs that once roamed the earth over 66 million years ago. Somehow, these fearsome hunters become one of the most successful of all predators.

Crocodile Facts

  • The world’s largest reptile—Of all the species of crocodile, saltwater crocodiles are the biggest. In fact, they are the biggest reptiles on earth and can grow up to a massive 6.17 meters.
  • They are everywhere…almost—Crocodiles are found in every inhabited continent except for Europe.
  • Crocodile tears are real—Crocodiles really do produce tears, but it’s not because they are sad. Tears can be produced while eating or if the croc swallows too much air.
  • They can keep their jaws open in and out of the water—We’ve all seen crocodiles with their jaws wide open while on the land. A valve at the back of their throat allows them to keep their jaw open both in and out of the water.
  • They live for years—The average lifespan of a crocodile is at least 30-40 years. However, some larger species may live up to 70 years.

They mainly hunt at night—Crocodiles have exceptionally excellent night vision, which they use for nocturnal hunting.
