ANIMAL FACTS - Crocodilians
For wild saltwater crocodiles, only one in five nests will hatch out due to predation from pigs, snakes, rats and goannas or inappropriate positioning. During some years almost all the nest sites will be wasted away in floods. The female will not mourn the loss of the eggs, she just tries again at nest time.
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.
