Photographer's Note

This is a 4 month old Nile Crocolie. This picture was taken at a Crocodile Farm i Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. I got to hold that one as well. Nothing has been done to this picture, except resize for web use.

The adult Nile Crocodile can reach up to about 5m (16ft) and weigh up to 900kg(2000lb). They have a bite equal to 3000psi. In the wild it is estimated to live for almost 100 years, in captivity the oldest one is 56 years.
