Most people in the world fear Crocodiles but they really are really nice animals. Crocodiles are so cute if you know what you’re doing!

A Crocodile eats around 2-5 pounds of meat per day.In the wild Crocodiles eat insects, fish, small frogs, lizards, crustaceans and small mammals.

If you get your own crocodile, do not feed them chicken or beef. Their  food also needs to be chopped to a size that is easy to eat.

A SaltWater Crocodile can live up to 70 years old and a Nile Crocodile lives up to 50-60 years.

There are many differences between a Crocodile and an Alligator. For example, a Croc has a V snout and a Gator has a U snout. A Croc has their lower teeth showing and a Gator does not.

A lot of people think that crocodiles are heartless and just kill everything and it makes me sad they think this.

Crocodiles really love people if you raise them and not get one fully grown straight from a river. Crocodiles love to be pet and scratch under their jaw.

If you train them, you can even walk them around in public but they need to be on a leash and harness.
