The Crocodiles and Muggers

Cities 00

These large aquatic reptiles, crocodiles are known to be found all across Asia. There are several types of crocodiles found all around, including the American crocodile, the freshwater crocodile, the saltwater crocodile and Mugger crocodile. Though often confused with alligators, crocodiles and alligators aren't the same, even if they don't have a lot of differences which can be spotted.

Places they are found in :

Several crocodile species can be found in India, including the saltwater crocodiles and the mugger crocodiles. The saltwater crocodiles are not only the largest existing ones, but the most aggressive ones too. They usually have yellow and black stripes when young, but as they grow, the stripes convert into dark green drabs. They can be found in eastern India, in places like Bhitarkanika National Park, Odisha, where the largest saltwater crocodiles in India are known to live.

Mugger crocodiles are majorly found in the Indian subcontinent, and are endowed with a large snout and alligator like bodies. They're slow moving and have armored bodies. They can be found in places like Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary, Tamil Nadu.

Another species of crocodiles, widely found in India, are the gharial crocodiles, which can be found in places like National Chambal Sanctuary, Rajasthan / Madhya Pradesh.

The best time to visit and take a glimpse at crocodiles in India is summers and autumns, when the weather isn't chilly.
