Australian Saltwater Crocodile


   2 / 13


The extreme Force in the World of the living Creatures

Being the largest reptile on earth, the saltwater crocodile is widely deemed to be one of the most powerful and dangerous predators on the planet, in circumstances of physical confrontation. Even under the maximum size of more than six meters and over 1000 kilograms in weight, a single animal is able to kill a fully grown cattle bull, by pulling it into the water and drowning it. The strength of the animals’ jaws is incredible, the same as its explosive force and speed when attacking large prey. Anyway its main food source contens of medium sized fish and crabs.
