Crocodile: One of the Strongest Bites in the Animal World

Information and main features:

- Crocodiles are large, semi-aquatic reptiles.

- There are 14 species of crocodiles. The best known are: American crocodile, Orinoco crocodile, Freshwater crocodile, Nile crocodile, Persian crocodile, Cuban crocodile and Morelet crocodile.

- We can find crocodiles living in Africa, America, Australia and Asia.

- Most species live in areas near rivers, mainly on the banks.

- Crocodiles have an extremely strong jaw. Some species have 70 to 80 teeth. The bite of a crocodile can reach 2 tons of force, enough to break the bones of a large mammal (horse, ox, zebra, etc.).

- They have flaky, dry and very hard skin.

- They are great swimmers.

- They are carnivores and feed mainly on fish, waterfowl and small and medium sized mammals. They use the force of their jaw and teeth to tear their prey apart.

- Crocodile eyes and nasal passages are at the top of the head, allowing the animal to see and breathe while remaining underwater.

- They are oviparous animals and reproduction occurs internally.
