Description

The Siamese crocodile is a small, freshwater crocodilian (a group that also includes alligators, caimans and the gharial), with a relatively broad, smooth snout and an elevated bony crest behind each eye (3). It is one of the most endangered crocodiles in the wild, although it is extensively bred in captivity (4).
