Never trust a crocodile!

What has a scaly body like a fish, a long, pointed snout, is a very fearsome hunter and is related to dinosaurs and birds? That's right, it is a crocodile! Crocodiles can live in a range of places including rivers, lakes and wetlands. When they have their babies they like to build their nests on muddy river banks. Even though you might think it is cute, but never trust a crocodile. Read on if you would like to learn some more interesting facts about the amazing… CROCODILE.

Waiting for the bus

Are you very patient? Let me tell you that however patent you are a crocodile is more patient than you. A crocodile can wait for nearly 1 to 4 hours just for something to come by. A crocodile can stay underwater for 10 to 15 minutes without coming out to breath, but if it is trying to hide from a threat it can stay 30 minutes or more. A crocodile has times when it is very hungry so they even eat shellfish but in other times they  just eat some of the animals that are very unfortunate to cross their path.

Come in if you dare

A crocodile’s habitat is swamps, rivers and lakes. Crocodiles make their nests in long grass, muddy river banks and sandy coasts. For any animal that is unfortunate enough to cross a crocodile's home it will kill it and eat how much depending on the time of the year it is because in some seasons they are not so hungry. Then when the baby is born it will drag it into a hole made especially for the baby crocodiles.

Ancestor of dinosaurs

Now you can see that a crocodile is the best animal in the world and the most patient animal you can think of. They were a ancestor of dinosaurs which means that they lived 55 million of years ago and survived till today. Did you know that a crocodile’s mother is the best mother in the reptile species? Do you want the crocodiles species to be extinct?

This week we have been researching about crocodiles and we wrote a report about it.
