Who's Who of Crocodilians

Launch interactive Who's Who of Crocodilians


Crocodiles are not the only crocodilians. There are also caiman, gavials, and of course alligators. All told, these hardy reptiles are found in 91 countries—from Belize's freshwater pools, where Morelet's crocodile lurks, to the marshy riverbeds of China's Yangtze River, home to the world's most endangered crocodilian, the Chinese alligator. With this interactive map, get to know each species with photos and information on its diet, habitat, size, and more. To launch the map, click on the image at left.—Jennifer Uscher and Leila Saad
