Slender-Snouted Crocodile

Slender-Snouted Crocodile

Slender-snouted crocodiles show their dominance using different rituals and perform visual displays to attract potential mates.

Little research has been conducted on communication in slender-snouted crocodiles. However, most crocodile species show common communication methods.

Vision plays an integral role in crocodilian communication, with males showing their dominance to intruders using different rituals, including raising their bodies out of the water to try to appear larger to intimidate their intruders. During mating season, crocodilian species perform visual displays to attract potential mates.
