First Appearance

Great White Shark vs Saltwater Crocodile

The huge saltwater crocodile is the biggest modern reptile, and one of the most infamous. Up to date, it appeared only in the episode "Shark vs. Crocodile", where it was defeated by a Great White Shark.

LocationEdit

The saltwater crocodile is found in rivers and coastal areas of northern Australia, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, as well as in southeast Asia.

Physical characteristicsEdit

On the average - 4.5 m in length, but some males may reach 7 m in length and weigh 1040 kg.

Attack styleEdit

The saltwater crocodile is an ambush predator: it lies in wait underwater, in swamps and rivers, waiting for its prey. Once the prey approaches, the saltwater crocodile moves with a surprising speed, rocketing out of the water, and dragging prey - even the Asian water buffalo underwater, where it drowns.

TriviaEdit

  • A crocodile's teeth are designed to hold and smash through prey, such as an antelope or a crab: they are blunter than those of a shark.
  • In the BBC show "Inside Nature's Giants", a crocodile's bite proved to be more powerful than that of a great white shark in real life.
  • It cannot do the death roll on bigger shark like Great White Shark.
