ANIMAL FACTS - Crocodilians

It is possible to determine the fertility of a Crocodillian egg due to a dark band that forms around the egg; this band is actually the embryo developing and attaching itself to the roof of the egg. As the egg develops, the band widens and eventually covers the whole egg.
