This page contains a list of crocodiles in Africa, with pictures, facts and figures. You can see more incredible African animals here: African Animals List.
The crocodile is one of Africa’s most famous animals. This fearsome aquatic reptile is known for its powerful jaws and explosive ambush attacks.
The crocodile is neither furry nor cute, and is often portrayed as the ‘bad guy’ in nature documentaries, leaping out at unsuspecting zebras or migrating wildebeest.
Although it does have a bit of an image problem, the crocodile plays a vital role in the African ecosystem and several species are currently threatened, with one, the slender-snouted crocodile, being rated ‘critically endangered’ by the IUCN.
Crocodiles are hunted for bushmeat and for their skins. They are also threatened by growing human incursion into their natural habitats.
