Walking with Dinosaurs
Crocodiles once roamed the earth with the dinosaurs. The snout, armoured scales, sharp teeth and webbed hind feet have remained relatively unchanged for over 200 million years.
Don’t sweat it
As a reptile, crocodiles cannot sweat to maintain their body temperature. Instead they cool down by making their way to the water or sitting with their jaws open, allowing the air to pass over the skin of the mouth.
To see this species in the wild, we suggest Lakefield National Park, Queensland.
