Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus)
Order: Crocodolia, Family: Crocodylidae

Coloring: ranges from drab green or brownish to a blackish tone on the dorsal side, much lighter on the ventral side. The eyes and nostrils of crocodiles are situated on the top of the head so they can see and breathe while the rest of their body remains almost totally underwater. In the water, crocs have large, oar-like tails that they use to swim. Only their rear feet are webbed, and they are rarely used in movement underwater.
