Caption: Nile crocodile chasing a man, 16th century artwork. Nile crocodiles can reach a length of over six metres. They inhabit tropical and subtropical areas of Africa and Madagascar, near swamps, lakes and rivers and feed on large animals such as antelope, as well as smaller prey such as water birds and small mammals. This is a woodcut from Cosmographie de Levant (1556), an account of travels in Asia, Greece, Palestine and Egypt by the French writer and explorer Andre Thevet (1502-1590).
