Caption

Eye and ear (slot) of a young Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus). 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. Crocodiles have good eyesight and hearing. The vertical pupil of a crocodile's eye aids hunting at night. Photographed in 2011, at the Pierrelatte crocodile farm (La Ferme aux Crocodiles) in southern France.
