Biology

Philippine crocodiles are thought to feed mainly on fish, invertebrates and small amphibians and reptiles (4), but very little else is known about the natural history or ecology of wild populations. In captivity, females build mound-nests at the end of the dry season from leaf litter and mud, upon which they lay a relatively small clutch of 7 - 14 eggs (4). Females show parental care of both the eggs and hatchlings (2).
