AFROTROPICAL Freshwater

The reptiles of the African freshwater wetlands...

Family Crocodylidae

Crocodylus niloticus, 'Nile Crocodile' (Mburo Lake, Uganda), spend much of their time semi-submerged in the water, from where they hunt their prey .

To warm up their body, they bask near the water's edge.
