‘SALTY’ AND FRIENDS

MEET 'SALTY'

The saltwater crocodile is a formidable and opportunistic hypercarnivorous ambush predator capable of taking almost any animal that enters its territory, including fish, crustaceans, reptiles, birds and mammals. Due to their size and distribution, saltwater crocodiles are the most dangerous extant crocodilian to humans!

“Salty” was originally imported from SirLanka. Our original Porosus was participating in a stud service where he was accidentally killed by a female croc during an unfortunate breading accident. “Salty” was given to Gatorama after that tragic loss and has been conditioned to Allen’s voice. 

While we don’t do shows with Salty too often, you might get lucky and see him in action as our keepers maintain his area. Rumor has it that Ben has been close enough to smell its breath.
