Slender-Snouted Crocodile (Mecistops cataphractus)
For the month of April 2020, FaunaFocus will feature its first crocodile, the slender-snouted crocodile!
The slender-snouted crocodile is distinct from other crocodiles because of its thin, slender snout. This nocturnal reptile is endemic to central Africa and can be found within neritic and coastal waters and along shorelines. As an ambush predator, this species waits submerged underwater with just its eyes and nostrils visible.
Create art inspired by the slender-snouted crocodile and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
