ANIMAL FACTS - Crocodilians
The female Saltwater Crocodile is an industrious mother and constructs a large (2 metres wide and up to a metre high) mound nest of compost. With the summer rains, this material decomposes which in turn produces heat to incubate the eggs.
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.
