Wild crocodiles are found in North America (from Florida to Mexico), Central and northern South America, as well as Africa (including Madagascar), Asia (from Pakistan to… India and Indonesia) and Australia. They are also found in many islands in the IndoPacific oceans. Europe and Antarctica are the only continents that have no living species of crocodilians.
they would likely fight for mating rights during the mating season. or they could fight each other for food.
crocodiles eat anything but nothing eats the crocodile' Answer:Crocodiles eat Fish, small animals, people who aren't careful. Humans will eat crocodile and alligators i…f they catch them. If a sick or injured crocodile were to be caught on shore a larger predator or a pack of predators would eat them.
The saying starts with one person saying, "See ya later, alligator." The other person responds, "After a while, crocodile."
Crocodiles are reptiles that live in the water. They are very dangerous animals.
They do indeed. I should also point out that crocs are reptiles, not amphibians.
An average American alligator's weight and length is 800 pounds (360 kg) and 13 feet (4.0 m) long, but can grow to 14.5 feet (4.4 m) long and weigh 1,000 pounds (450 kg) Ma…ture males of the Australian estuarine crocodile (salty) can be 6 metres (20 ft) or more and weigh 1,300 kilograms (2,900 lb) or larger.
Crocodiles communicate in lots of ways. Tail slapping and bubble blowing is an invitation to mate. Showing of teeth and roughhousing with other crocs is sort of a "get out of …here" saying.
Crocodiles are ambush hunters, waiting for fish or land animals to come close, then rushing out to attack. As cold-blooded predators, they have a very slow metabolism, and thu…s can survive long periods without food. Despite their appearance of being slow, crocodiles are top predators in their environment, and various species have been observed attacking and killing sharks. A famous exception is the Egyptian Plover which is said to enjoy a symbiotic relationship with the crocodile. According to unauthenticated reports, the plover feeds on parasites that infest the crocodile's mouth and the reptile will open its jaws and allow the bird to enter to clean out the mouth. Many large crocodilians swallow stones (called gastroliths or stomach stones) which may act as ballast to balance their body or assist in crushing food, similar to grit in birds.
U can't, because most of the crocodiles are at low risk or slightly threatened. Not a lot of them are endangered.
Crocodile comes from the Greek words krokos and deilos, meaning "pebble worm". It probably refers to the elongated, "worm" like body of the animal and its pebbly looking skin.…
A crocodile can choose which it its eggs become boys and which become girls. The eggs buried deep in the sand will become girls and the ones near the surface will become boys.… Something to do with the temperature :P
all i know is that hippos usually attack them and try to keep them away from their young. i hope this helped at least a little bit :)

Many large crocodilians swallow stones (called gastroliths or stomach stones) which may act as ballast to balance their body or assist in crushing food, similar to grit in birds. Salt glands are present in the tongues of most crocodylids and they have a pore opening on the surface of the tongue. They appear to be similar to those in marine turtles; they seem to be absent in Alligatoridae. Crocodilians can produce sounds during distress and in aggressive displays. They can also hear well and the tympanic membranes are concealed by flat flaps that may be raised or lowered by muscles. Crocodiles eat fish, birds, mammals and occasionally smaller crocodiles. Crocodiles do not have sweat glands and release heat through their mouths. They often sleep with their mouths open and may even pant like a dog. It is reported that when the Nile crocodile has lurked a long time underwater to catch prey, and thus has built up a big oxygen debt, when it has caught and eaten that prey, it closes its right aortic arch and uses its left aortic arch to flush blood loaded with carbon dioxide from its muscles directly to its stomach; the resulting excess acidity in its blood supply makes it much easier for the stomach lining to secrete very much stomach acid to quickly dissolve bulks of swallowed prey flesh and bone.
Yes. A crocodile is a vertebrate, as it has a backbone. Allreptiles are vertebrates. Yes, a crocodile, like all reptiles, is a vertebrate.
Crocodiles (subfamily Crocodylinae) or true crocodiles are large aquatic reptiles that live throughout the tropics in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia. Crocodylinae, a…ll of whose members are consideredtrue crocodiles, is classified as a biological subfamily. A broader sense of the term crocodile, Crocodylidae that includes Tomistoma, is notused in this article. The term crocodile here applies only to thespecies within the subfamily of Crocodylinae. The term is sometimesused even more loosely to include all extant members of the order Crocodilia, which includesTomistoma,the alligators and caimans (family Alligatoridae), the gharials (family Gavialidae), and all other living and fossil Crocodylomorpha.
