Kenya Crocodiles

You are Here: › Kenya Crocodiles

Despite their size and ferocious reputation Kenya Crocodiles tend to be wary of people and avoid contact with them.

They inhabit rivers and fresh-water lakes in Kenya and are able to survive through dry spells by burying themselves in the mud and hibernating.

In the heat of the day you will see them lying in the sun with their mouths wide open to cool themselves down (evaporation of water from the moist surfaces in the mouth has a similar effect to sweating).

They are very effective at waste disposal since their digestive systems can handle rotting meat from old carcasses (unlike many carnivores which require fresh meat).
