Digital Calendar photo description

Toothy Grin

Late afternoon on the banks of the Chobe River in Botswana, this crocodile enjoyed the warmth of the late afternoon’s setting sun.

Nile Crocodile  -  Crocodylus niloticus

The Nile crocodile is common in many parts of Africa. Like all crocodiles, the Nile crocodile is a quadruped with four short, splayed legs, along, powerful tail, a scaly hide with rows of ossified scutes running downit’s back and tail, and powerful jaws. It has nictitating membranes to protect the eyes and lachrymal glands to cleanse it’s eyes with tears. The nostrils, eyes, and ears are situated on the top of the head, so the rest of the body can remain concealed underwater. The coloration also helps to camouflage it. Their mouths are filled with a total of 64 to 68 cone-shaped teeth. On each side ofthe mouth, there are five teeth in the front of the upper jaw (premaxilla), 13 or 14 in the rest of the upper jaw (maxilla), and 14 or 15 on either side. The Nile crocodile is the largest crocodilian in Africa. The male crocodile usually measure from 3.5 to 5 m long, but very old mature ones can grow to 5.5 m ormore. Typical Nile crocodile weight is from 225 to 500 kg, though large malescan range up to 750 kg in mass.
