The Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), also known as the Estuarine Crocodile, is the largest of all living reptiles. Identified by their broad snouts, powerful jaws and heavily armoured bodies, they can be found throughout tropical regions of Asia and the Pacific. Saltwater Crocodiles are capable of travelling long distances, and have been spotted at sea, far from land. They are large creatures, with adult males generally around 4—5 metres in length, although some specimens up to 6 metres have been recorded.
Saltwater Crocodiles will eat any creature that they are able to catch, and with their predatory nature, larger specimens can be a danger to humans. Although they are a top predator, Saltwater Crocodiles have been protected as a vulnerable species since the 1970s.
