Caption

Nile crocodile. Close-up of the head of a Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus). Nile crocodiles can reach a length of over six metres. The bite force of an adult Nile crocodile is huge. However, the muscles that open the mouth are very weak, allowing a man to easily hold them shut. Nile crocodiles 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. Photographed in the Montagne des Francais Reserve, Madagascar.
