Description

Saltwater Crocodile – Crocodylus porosus,
The Saltwater crocodile, also refered to as the estuarine crocodile, Indo-Pacific crocodile or marine crocodile is the largest living reptile in the world. Males of this species can reach sizes up to 6.30 m weighing 1,000 to 1,200 kg. Females are much smaller and often do not surpass 3 m.
As its name suggests, this species of crocodile can live in saltwater environments, but usually resides in saline and brackish mangrove swamps. They are found along the eastern coast of India throughout most of Southeast Asia and northern Australia. Prey are ambushed and then drowned or swallowed whole. It is capable of prevailing over almost any animal that enters its territory, including other apex predators such as sharks, as well as reptiles, birds and mammals, including humans.
