Whilst laying, the back feet are used to position the eggs and once finished to pull fine compost around to cover them. At this point she becomes very defensive of the nest and will not let anything come near her or her nest.
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.
