The Nile Crocodile is native to the river systems of tropical and southern Africa. This large crocodilian can weigh up to 2000 lbs (900kg) and grow to a length of 20 feet (6m). This carnivore preys on mammals when they come to drink, submerging at the waters edge and attacking in ambush. Smaller crocodiles will also feed on fish, birds, and other reptiles. Their teeth, which they have 64 of, are constantly being replaced. Each tooth is hollow, with new ones growing inside the old ones.
