Episode InformationSomething’s stirring in the swamp. A dragon lurking in the gloom, boasting the most terrifying, bone crushing bite-force on earth. A tonne of cold blooded monster: the crocodile. This is the biggest reptile on the planet, harking back millions of years to when the world was ruled by giant reptiles. He is king of the wetland, stalking the areas where rainforest and wetland transition to coast. During the crocodile’s 100 million year ancestry, many kinds have come and gone. Today there are 25 species, inhabiting the tropic and sub-tropic parts of the world. Perhaps because of their fearsome appearance they’re often considered primitive, but nothing could be further from the truth. They’re actually incredibly complex creatures – intelligent, parental and social. Not forgetting that they’re built to kill. Welcome to crocodile kingdom.
