Our Plastic Toy Crocodile
This engaging, somewhat realistic-looking plastic crocodile miniature is made of somewhat flexible plastic. This replica has a detailed face and body and is painted in one shade of green, although the freshwater and saltwater Australian crocodile is more gray in color. It has detailed scales. This plastic crocodile makes for a nice pet, fits into a shoebox diorama, or serves as a great collectible. Check out our other crocodile toys and gifts.
There are two kinds of Australian crocodiles, the Freshwater Johnsons Crocodile and Saltwater Estuarine Crocodile. Crocodiles have long narrow snouts, and the 4th tooth of the lower jaw is outside when the mouth is closed. Their scales have modified to form thick tough skin. All crocodiles have eyes and nostrils are on the top part of the head so that they can lie in the water almost completely hidden from view. Crocodiles have very strong jaws. They do not chew their food. They swallow it in large chunks. In the stomach the food is broken down. They feed on a large variety of prey such as small mammals, birds and even cattle. Crocodiles grab their prey and move to deep water, where they roll over to drown the animal. They can leap high out of the water to reach their prey if necessary.
