The Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), also known as the Estuarine Crocodile, is the largest of all living reptiles. Identified by their broad snouts, powerful jaws and heavily armoured bodies, they can be found throughout tropical regions of Asia and the Pacific. Saltwater Crocodiles are capable of travelling long distances, and have been spotted at sea, far from land. They are large creatures, with adult males generally around 4—5 metres in length, although some specimens up to 6 metres have been recorded.
