Find out how Crocodile attack and live

Crocodile is one of the animals I am afraid to be around. I grew up at the farm and we live close to the river. Some people say there are crocodile at the river. Well, I guess they are right because one of my grandmother dog shouted while crossing the river. Sound like he got bite. The topic I'm going to share with you today is about crocodile and I hope you will enjoy to read it. A crocodile is any species belonging to the family Crocodylidae, sometimes classigied instead as the subfamily Crocodylinae. The word crocodile comes from the Ancient Greek "lizard" used in the phrase ho crocodilos ho potamos, the lizard of the Nile river.

Crocodile are similar to alligators and caiman, for their common biology and differences between them. Crocodile are very fast over short distance that appears to flush mud off. Crocodiles are ambush hunters, waiting for fish or land animals to come close, then rushing out to attack. They are top predators in their environment, and various species have been observed attacking and killing sharks.

Crocodiles eat fish, birds, mammals and occasionally smaller crocodiles. They are more closely related to birds and dinosaurs than to most animals classified as reptiles, the three being included in the group Archosauria. The size varies between species, from the dwarf crocodile to the saltwater crocodile. Species of Palaeosuchus and Osteolaemus grow to an adult size of just 1 metre (3.3 ft) to 1.5 metres (4.9 ft). Larger species can reach over 4.85 metres (15.9 ft) long and weigh well over 1,200 kilograms (2,600 lb). Crocodilians show pronounced sexual dimorphism with males growing much larger and more rapidly than females.Despite their large adult size, crocodiles start their life at around 20 centimetres (7.9 in) long. The largest species of crocodile is the saltwater crocodile, found in northern Australia, throughout south-east Asia, and in the surrounding waters.
