Glossary for Crocodylus palustris
- Animal habitation
- The dwelling of an animal or group of similar animals.
- A major class of ecologically similar communities of plants, animals, and other organisms. Biomes are defined based on factors such as plant structures (such as trees, shrubs, and grasses), leaf types (such as broadleaf and needleleaf), plant spacing (forest, woodland, savanna), and other factors like climate. Unlike ecozones, biomes are not defined by genetic, taxonomic, or historical similarities. Biomes are often identified with particular patterns of ecological succession and climax vegetation.

- Freshwater lake
- A lake of whose water contains low concentrations of salts.
- The natural environment in which an organism lives, or the physical environment that surrounds (influences and is utilized by) a species population.
