Slender-Snouted Crocodile

Slender-Snouted Crocodile

The powerful tail of the slender-snouted crocodile gives it forward propulsion in the water, allowing it to move in a graceful, serpentine motion.

While swimming, slender-snouted crocodiles move in a very graceful, serpentine motion through the water. Power for forward propulsion is provided by the tail, with the limbs providing very little, if any, aid in swimming.
