King of the Reptiles

Crocodiles are ancient reptiles that seem to have been frozen in time; unchanging for thousands of years. There are just 13 different species roaming the earth today that can be found in the lakes, rivers, and swampy areas of Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Often confused with its cousin the alligator, they can survive in both fresh and saltwater, have a narrower, V-shaped jaw, and are notorious for their sharp teeth that stick up over their upper lip. As menacing as crocodiles look, they spend 17 hours a day sleeping, but don’t let their docile life fool you, these giants are actually very fast swimmers, can bite down with 5,000 pounds of pressure per square inch (humans can only bite down with 100), and will eat just about anything.
