Saltwater crocodiles are the largest of all living reptiles, and the largest riparian predator in the world. Males can reach up to 6.3 – 7 meters in length and can weigh up to 1,200 kilograms.
Humans can outrun crocodiles. These creatures can go for 12-14 Kilometers per hour for short periods and have three main types of locomotion: belly crawl (used over mud), high walk (where the legs are pushed up and the body is up off the ground), and the gallop (where they bound like rabbits).
