Crocodiles live in great numbers in the rivers of the north, Kunene, Okavango, Kwando and Zambesi. Zhe animals have a strong tail to propel themselves forward in the water. On land they use their equally strong legs to move their massive bodies as fast as arrows through the mud of the riverbank.


The crocodile usually goes hunting in the shelter of the evening twilight. While they are small, crocodiles live mainly on worms, beetles and crabs. Later they add fish, waterbirds and medium sized mammals to the list of their prey.

Game Reserves: Bwabwata National Park, Chobe National Park, the rivers in northern Namibia.
