The Salt Water Crocodile is the largest living reptile in the world and inhabits lakes, swamps and waters of forests. There are between 200,000 and 300,000 saltwater crocs in the world and they are all creatures of the night, when they do most of their feeding. During the hours of daylight, you will find the crocodile at home bathing in the sun.

The crocodile's life span is approximately 70 years and they reach sexual maturity between the ages of 12 ~ 16 years. The croc's long muscular tail propels from side to side and enables him to keep his balance in the water. His tail is almost half his total length, so one swipe of his tail and it would certainly knock you off your feet! The female crocodile can lay between 20 and 90 eggs, but it is usually between 40 and 60. To enable the crocodile to see under the water, it is equipped with a transparent membrane which covers his eyes.

There is no scientific answer as to how long a crocodile lives because all our current data is based on crocodiles being killed by humans or dying of starvation or dying in captivity.  We have no other information to base a crocodiles lifespan with these variables removed, All we know is that they get bigger with age.  Crocodiles could live as long as a tortoise or possibly even longer!

There is no exact information of how long the crocodiles live for but it is recorded that on average their lifespan is of 60 to 70 years. Yet there are some who live upto 100 years or more as well. The most common way used to measure the age of a crocodile is by counting the rings in bones and teeth.
