It can weigh up to 800 kilos. Its thick and rough skin has been desired by humans to be used in the leather goods business. It is not surprising that the crocodile does not get along well with man.

The crocodile moves almost crawling across the ground with its four legs, two front, and two rear. The first has five fingers, and the back has only four. This, together with its long tail, serves to maintain balance, something that would not be so easy due to its weight and measurements.
He usually spends much of his immobile life in freshwater rivers or mangroves on saltwater beaches. They are very adaptable and will move from one habitat to another at will, or according to their needs.
The crocodile lives in tropical areas of Africa, North America, Central America, Australia, and some parts of Asia. Most of his life is spent in water, whether fresh or salt.
As we all know, he is carnivorous, and his diet is based on fish, crabs, dead animals, birds, and occasionally he risks a buffalo, a zebra, and even a wildebeest. How does he hunt them?
It’s common knowledge that reptiles are secretive, and this specimen is not left out. Under the water, he approaches his prey bit by bit as she drinks water from the river. When least expected, he runs to her and drags her to the river, where a fight, which the reptile rarely loses, will begin.
Despite its sharp, huge teeth, this animal cannot chew, so when it grabs its prey, it tears it into large pieces and swallows it up. It is then that its powerful gastric juices come into play, to complete the work of digestion.
Furthermore, the crocodile’s organism can modify its metabolism by itself, based on the abundance or scarcity of food in its habitat. When there is scarcity, digestion becomes slow, while the opposite occurs in times of plenty.
