ANIMAL FACTS - Crocodilians
In winter, alligators in the wild retreat into burrows, under riverbanks, in mud holes or move to shallow backwaters. They can survive freezing conditions by keeping their nose above water so that breathing holes form when the water surface freezes. Here they remain dormant until spring.
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.
