A Bask of Crocodiles

Crocodiles have been on earth for about 80 million years. They are the largest reptiles on the planet, yet more closely related to dinosaurs and birds. They have superb night vision and are able to regrow each of their 80 teeth up to 50 times. The largest recorded crocodile was caught in the Philippines and kept in captivity. Named Lolong, it was 20.24 feet long and weighed 2,370 pounds. Crocodiles have the strongest bite in the animal kingdom, but they have such weak jaw muscles that a human can manually keep the animal’s mouth closed. “Crocodile tears” refers to the apparent weeping that happens when they devour food, when in fact they are just lubricating their dry eyes.
