Crocodilians — crocodiles, alligators, gharials, and caimans — are some of the most successful predators on the planet, as well as being very interesting looking. They possess an impressive array of “super-sensory” adaptations that make them very effective hunters within their preferred habitats. They are also some of my “favorite” animals — meaning that their hunting spirit and ability, as well as their preferred methods, are something that I can appreciate.

For those that have not had the good fortune of growing up around these animals, I present you with these 10 images. Enjoy. :)
