Crocodiles

  • SEA LIFE, Crocodile Enclosure

Come face to face with African Dwarf Crocodiles

The dwarf crocodile is the world's smallest crocodile, growing up to 190 cm in length (by contrast, the Nile crocodile can reach 5 m in length).  As a reptile, you will notice that our crocs spend much of their time basking.

These reptiles don't move around very much...

But when they do they can move at up to 28 miles per hour! Reptiles are also unable to maintain a warmblood temperature internally as we mammals can, instead they must warm their bodies in the light to keep them at the right temperature.
