The crocodile of the Nile




After this monster, Crocodylus porosus, comes the second-largest reptile on Earth, Crocodylus niloticus. Saltwater crocodile the earth's biggest reptile. Lots of fangs, smart, and surprisingly swift and nimble considering its size. Though not all crocodiles are enraged;



This crocodile is a young Nile crocodile, and she needed to scratch something.

There are five crocodilian species that are harmful to humans.



 5.Crocodile in America (Crocodylus acutus)



The Central American alligator, another name for the American crocodile, may be found in a variety of aquatic settings from southern Florida and Mexico south through the Caribbean islands and Central America to northern South America. It has been seen in estuaries with brackish water, therefore it is not unfamiliar with saline settings. Male adults can reach a length of around 16.5 feet (about 5 metres). Although American crocodiles often feed on smaller animals, stories of assaults on humans are relatively rare. According to CrocBITE, 90 persons were attacked between 2008 and 2013, and 20 of them died.


4. Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus)



The gharial, also known as the gavial, lives in the rivers of Nepal and northern India. It may be identified by the length of its relatively thin, sharp-toothed jaws, which it sweeps sideways to capture fish, its primary diet. The gharial typically grows to be between 12 and 15 feet long (3.7 to 4.6 meters). It doesn't assault people, but it seems to eat the bodies that are floated down the Ganges River during burial rites.



3. U.S. Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis)



American alligators (or "gators") are native to the Gulf Coast region of the United States and can be found in freshwater environments ranging from lakes and streams to marshes, marshes, and other wetlands; However, some have been observed in salty habitats such as mangrove swamps. Most alligators are smaller than their alligator cousins, with adult males typically growing to between 13 and 15 feet (4 and 4.5 m). Between 2000 and 2007, alligator attacks in Florida averaged less than 11 per year, although those attacks accounted for less than 10% of deaths. Between 1948 and 2005, wildlife officials documented 379 crocodile attacks on people, resulting in 17 deaths. Interestingly, he also noted that most of those incidents do not begin with crocodiles, but with people attempting to pick up, hold, or otherwise handle the animal.




2. Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus)



The saltwater crocodile, commonly known as the estuarian crocodile or "Saltie," is found mostly in Southeast Asia, ranging from southern India to the northernmost part of Australia. Despite its name, saltwater crocodiles are not just found in saltwater environments; brackish waterways, freshwater streams, and swamps all include them. Males that are fully grown can grow to be more than 20 feet (approximately 6 metres) long and more than 1,100 pounds in weight (roughly 500 kg). The IUCN states that between 2000 and 2007, saltwater crocodiles were responsible for roughly 30 distinct assaults on people, based only on the records held by Australia and Malaysia. In Australia, 25% of the attacks resulted in death, whereas in Malaysia, 50% of those attacks killed the victim.
