ANIMAL FACTS - Crocodilians
Crocodile finger nails are soft. They are made from keratin, the same as a human nails, and they are not used for ripping into food. They are, however, used for scratching up a nest or for traction when climbing up slippery mud banks.
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.
