The Nile crocodile. This crocodile is an impressive animal with remarkable characteristics. They live for millions of years on the Nile River due to their great hunting and adaptation capacity. In addition to the success in its reproduction mode. The species digs nests of holes up to 50 cm deep in sandbanks, several meters from the water. Females lay about 40 to 60 eggs at a time. They stay close to the nest at all times to avoid predators. The incubation time of the eggs is on average 80 to 90 days, after which the females open the nest and transport the juveniles to the water. Many of them do not survive to reach adulthood, but what arrives are at the top of the food chain. Adult crocodiles can feed on a wide variety of vertebrates, including buffalo, young hippos, wildebeest, gazelles, among others. But smaller fish and vertebrates generally make up most of their diet. They have a reputation for being man-eaters. They represent a few hundred deaths a year. Even at the top of the food chain, they also do the dirty work. Nile crocodiles also often get rid of carcasses. Just like these images showing a hungry crocodile that fought rivals to feed on a dead giraffe in a nature reserve in South Africa The reptile approached the dead animal and entered the giraffe literally, in the Kruger National Park located in Northeast South Africa. It is not known exactly how the giraffe died Only that the smart crocodile ate until he could not take the big meal he didn’t even have to fight to kill. In the animal world it is so, always be attentive, and opportunities to make an easy mouth may arise.
