The Saltwater Crocodile is the largest reptile in the world with males reaching 5 to 6 metres although some reports mention 10 and even 12 metres. The females reach about 3 metres in size.
They are found in south-east Asia from southern India and Sri Lanka to north and north-east Australia. See the distribution map at IUCN.
|They are probably the most aquatic of crocodiles and, as the name suggests are found in brackish water and the
open sea as well as in freshwater.
