The specie of Crocodiles are true dinosaurs , and have changed little in the evolutionary stakes over millions of years.

The Saltwater Crocodile can swim as far as 1,000 klms (620 miles) by sea to reach it’s destination.In times of extreme drought, it has also been known to travel across land many klms to find a safe waterhole to ensure it’s survival.
