ANIMAL FACTS - Crocodilians

Out in the wild the survival rate of young crocodiles is exceptionally low. Everything in the Australian bush eats croc eggs or the young themselves. Goannas, feral pigs, birds of prey, fish, turtles, other crocs and just about anything elseā€¦ and that's if they make it out of the nest at all. Flooding destroys a countless number of croc nests every year.

Crikey - More Animal Facts!

The Crocodilian family includes, Crocodiles, Alligators, Caimans and Gharials. Australia Zoo is home to three of these species - Saltwater Crocodiles, Freshwater Crocodiles and American Alligators.
