  • The males are heavier than females. They are skilled predators but they are not known to attack humans. The third membrane in their eyes enables them to see things and keep water out of their sight.
  • Holes are dug by female crocodiles to lay eggs and the temperature of the nest determines the sex of the crocodile. If the temperature is around 32.5 Celsius then the crocodile will be a male and it will be a female if the temperature is between 28-31 Celsius.
