ANIMAL FACTS - Crocodilians

Not too many leucistic crocodiles actually live to adulthood in the wild, as their pale colouration results in them standing out to predators when they are young. On top of this it is estimated that only one out of 10,000 animals are hatched leucistic, giving Casper and Wendy a very special place at Australia Zoo.

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.
