The size of a saltwater crocodile is about 17 feet and weight about 1,000 pounds. It’s Earth’s largest living crocodilian. Saltwater crocodile populate in the brackish and fresh water regions of eastern India, Southeast Asia, and northern Australia. They are excellent swimmers and have often been spotted far out at sea.

They lurk patiently beneath the surface near the water’s edge, waiting for potential prey to stop for a sip of water. They’ll feed on anything they can get their jaws on, including water buffalo, monkeys, and wild boar. Without warning, they explode from the water with a thrash of their powerful tails, grasp their victim, and drag it back in, holding it under until the animal drowns.
