MAIN MENU

Crocodylus porosus

This relatively young adult crocodile still possesses the black spots and bands found in juvenile saltwater crocodiles. As with all crocodilian species, the distinct banding and colouration of the juveniles is gradually lost as the animal matures. The tan colour also shown by this animal will become darker and greyer as it gets older.
