Thanks for the very interesting article on crocodiles, Robbie. Though I must say that crocodiles are the animals I am not particularly fond of. But still they are indeed fascinating creatures and it is amazing that they have been more or less the same for about 85 million years. Totally exciting, these animals.

Robbie, thanks for the information about the crocodiles teeth. They are scary creatures.

Robert, Thanks for the in-depth explanation! They are truly amazing creatures!

Robbie was the wonderful Ranger for my daughter and me when we were at Varty Camp in November, 2023. He had a vast knowledge of the animals we were lucky enough to see and kept us constantly in awe of his commitment to the balance of nature in this glorious environment. He and our Tracker, Trevor, made the experience beyond fantastic!

Interesting article and good tips on differentiating between a crocodile and an alligator. The photos are fantastic!

Crocodylus niloticus are truly prehistoric looking and genuinely frightening. But I’m fascinated with those eyes and the amazingly detailed scales. Nice job, Rob!

Super fascinating post Robert! Crocs have always held a unique place in my imagination. Like sharks, I’m guessing it’s their truly prehistoric nature, as well as their sheer power and presence!

That’s interesting – no wonder they have evolved and survived for so long
