They will however eat birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and occasionally bats. They can deliver a nasty bite to humans but their jaws are not large enough or powerful enough to cause much damage.

Fact: Did you know the fresh water crocodile is one of the few species that can gallop on land, reaching speeds of up to 18km per hour?
