About the Crocodile:

Crocodiles (subfamily Crocodylinae) are large aquatic tetrapods that live throughout Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia. They are reptiles and, like most reptiles, are cold-blooded.

They have incredibly strong teeth and have the strongest bite of all animals in the world. They are very fast over short distances. They are very vocal creatures. They have good night vision and they are nocturnal. Experts believe all Crocodiles can see colour.

Crocodile Habitat:

All Crocodiles are semi-aquatic and live in rivers, lakes and wetlands, as well as some saltwater places. Crocodiles eat a variety of fish, birds and other animals as well as other, smaller crocodiles. Their size varies from the smallest, Dwarf Crocodile, to the largest Saltwater crocodile.

They have incredible senses that make them very successful predators. The eyes, ears and nostrils are located on top of the head, allowing the crocodile to lie low in the water to hide from its prey.

Taxidermy (Hunting Crocodile):

Thorough preparation is the key factor to ensuring a high-quality final product. All hides are tanned and oiled using the world’s very best available chemicals and processes to ensure permanence and longevity.
