The saltwater crocodile is the largest of all living reptiles. An adult male saltwater crocodile's weight is 900 - 2,200 lbs and length is normally 13 -18 ft. However, mature males can exceed 20 ft and weigh more than 2,200 lbs. Saltwater crocodiles are found in parts of Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia. They live in rivers and swamps often traveling well upstream in the major rivers.
Number 6 on Australia's deadliest animals list - The Salt-water Crocodile - Crocodiles are highly publicised for viciousness and aggression, along with looking scary, it is probably a surprise they are further down the list than you may have thought, this is because there are very few deaths per year - The longest croc ever measured and verified was 6.4m (21ft). It could have weighed more than 1000kg. In Australia, there are unverified reports of crocs up to 8m.

Crocodiles are incredible hunters, ambush predators, who can stay just beneath surface with only their eyes above the water. In fact, a 16 foot 1500 pound crocodile can remain undetected in as little as three feet of water.
