Slender-Snouted Crocodile

Slender-Snouted Crocodile

Slender-snouted crocodiles have been known to share their nests with other species of crocodilians in order to deter predators.

Female crocodilians of various species, included slender-snouted crocodiles, have shown evidence that the nests of some species may be shared between multiple females. It’s believed that these species share nests to allow better deterrence of predators.
