Crocodiles are in the food chain.

Crocodile hatchling emerges from the egg.

It is that time of the year again the crocodile hatchlings are out and about. Only weeks old these small crocodiles are an important food source for other animals, particularly birds. Their survival rate is about 1% which is common for any species that has a large clutch.

You can see these creatures on the Daintree River.

Best at low tide. See:
