- SEA LIFE, Crocodile Lair
One of the Australia's Biggest Crocodiles
Measuring in at over 5 metres and weighing 750kg, Pinjarra, our 55-year-old male Saltwater Crocodile is a spectacular sight to behold!
The Crocodile Lair exhibit will not only make you gasp, "WOW!", it helps our team at SEA LIFE to further educate the public on the ecological significance of the Saltwater Crocodile and the need for conservation.
Crocodile Fun Fact
Have you ever seen a crocodile resting on land with its mouth open? Believe it or not, baring its teeth like this isn't a sign of an angry crocodile. Crocodiles will often show this type of behaviour in the hot Summer months. They can't cool down like we do by sweating, so they do it by circulating cooler air around their mouths similar to how dogs pant.
There's nothing better than seeing an awe-inspiring creature like a crocodile up close. Come and meet Pinjarra face-to-face at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium!
