Caption: Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) skull. This carnivorous predator has strong jaws adapted to holding onto its prey. Both the upper and lower jaws are present here. This crocodile can reach a length of over 6 metres, with larger specimens having skull lengths of over 60 centimetres. The Nile crocodile inhabits tropical and subtropical areas of Africa, near swamps, lakes and rivers, feeding on large animals such as antelope, as well as smaller prey such as water birds and small mammals.
