Croc' Docked !!!

Crocodiles cold-blooded predators and are ambush hunters. Crocodiles do not have sweat glands, so they release heat through their mouths *and thus explains why they sun bath with mouth open*, The larger species of crocodiles are very dangerous to humans. The main danger that crocodiles pose is not their ability to run after a person but their ability to strike before the person can react.

Age: 50 to 60 years
Swimming Speed: 40 km per hour, land speed 17 km per hour
Natural Habitat: Freshwater habitats like rivers, lakes, wetlands and, at times, brackish water
Diet: Fish, birds, mammals and, at times, smaller crocodiles
The bite force of a crocodile is more than 5,000 pounds per square inch.
Crocodiles have very sharp teeth that help them in tearing and holding onto flesh. However, they cannot open their mouth if it is held closed, even with the help of an adhesive tape.
