MEET 'ELENA' AND 'SISTER ROSA'
These Cuban natives are small, tough and armoured with bony scales. More terrestrial than other crocodilian species, they raise their bellies off the ground and adopt a ‘high walk’ posture when moving on land. Their hind feet have reduced webbing, an adaptation that makes them more mobile on land than most other crocs. It’s preferred prey are turtles, which are crushed by the strong teeth at the rear of the mouth.
These are among guest favorites when it comes to feeding. They love their croc crunch, so grab a bag while you’re in the gift shop.
