Crocodile attack: Precautions and information
Crocodile attacks on people are not uncommon in places where crocodiles are native. The Saltwater and Nile Crocodiles are responsible for more attacks and more deaths than any other wild predator that attacks humans for food.
Each year, hundreds of deadly attacks occur in Africa and Southeast Asia.Crocodile attacks on people in regions where those animals are not native usually make news headlines.
Precautions and information
* Crocodiles become more aggressive during the mating season.
* Crocodiles can move very fast over short distances on land.
* Crocodiles are adept at learning and memorizing routines, such as the location of nearby campers or the routes of travelers.
* In water, crocodiles tend to drag their prey under and drown them.
* Crocodiles can slow their metabolism to such an extent that a tree with an intruder hiding in its branches may be guarded continuously for several weeks, without breaks for food.
* Crocodiles have strong muscles for closing their jaws and holding them shut, but weak muscles for opening them.
* There is a sensitive flap in a crocodile's throat, known as the glottis, which they use for breathing. As a result, as with some other predators, forcing the arm into the throat may encourage release, although this is not certain by any means and may instead lead to the arm being severed.
* Sometimes, an attacking crocodile will bite, hold on, and then rapidly spin its body to weaken its prey or tear off limbs (the 'death roll').
* When crocodiles see prey, they will duck under the water and when reached the prey's target, jump out and bite.
