Slender-Snouted Crocodile

Slender-Snouted Crocodile

Slender-snouted crocodile hatchlings resemble mature adults and are fully capable of feeding and swimming from the moment they hatch.

Newly emerged hatchlings measure 28 to 35 centimeters long. Young slender-snouted crocodilian hatchlings resemble mature adults, except smaller.

Young slender-snouted crocodiles are fully capable of feeding and swimming from the moment that they hatch. The time for hatchlings to reach independence is unknown, but they have been found near the nest for as long as two weeks after hatching.
