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.
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.
