Crocodilians (Crocodilia)


Tab 3
Tab 2

The Crocodilians are large semiaquatic reptiles with thick skin covered in non-overlapping scales. They have long snouts, laterally compressed tails, and eyes, ears, and nostrils at the top of the head. The order includes three families, Alligatoridae (Alligators and Caimans), Crocodylidae (True Crocodiles), and Gavialidae (Gharials), and 25 species. The Crocodilians are found mainly in lowlands in the tropics and subtropics, but the two species reach the southeastern United States and eastern China, respectively.
