Caption

Head of a young Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) in a laboratory. This carnivorous predator reaches lengths of over six metres when fully grown. It inhabits tropical and subtropical areas of Africa, near swamps, lakes and rivers. The young, born from eggs, are initially around 30 centimetres long. They grow to around 1.2 metres in length over the next two years, before becoming independent and leaving the nest area. The head includes powerful jaws, eyes, and ears (slot behind the eye). Crocodiles have good eyesight and hearing. Photographed in 2011, at the Pierrelatte crocodile farm (La Ferme aux Crocodiles) in southern France.
