Crocodile Behavior

Crocodiles are carnivorous and mostly active at night. Freshwater crocodiles eat fish, frogs and crustaceans. Saltwater crocodiles eat fish, birds, mammals and even other crocodiles. Crocodiles are ambush hunters. They wait for the animal to come close and then rush to attack. As cold-blooded predators, crocodiles can survive long periods without food.

Saltwater crocodiles are highly territorial and adult males will often kill juveniles.
