It swims with same speed as of dolphin. Slow-swimming pelicans are also frequently vulnerable to crocodiles. Even though, they are capable to live in salty water but rarely found in salt water. Like, head to head strength. This predator can destroy about 50% of studied Nile crocodile eggs on its own, often being successful (as are other nest predators) in light of the trance-like state that the mother crocodile enters while brooding or taking advantage of moments where she is distracted or needs to leave the nest. This size range consists of subadult males and a mixture of subadult and adult females. [3][42][50][51] This gives the Nile crocodile somewhat of a size advantage over the next largest non-marine predator on the African continent, the lion (Panthera leo), which averages 188 kg (414 lb) in males and 124 kg (273 lb) in females, and attains a maximum known weight of 313 kg (690 lb), far less than that of large male crocodiles. [15] However, exertion by crocodilians can lead to death due to increasing lactic acid to lethal levels, which in turn leads to failure of the animal's internal organs. Large mammalian predators in Africa are often social animals and obligated to feed almost exclusively on terrestrial zones. Such predators that can find themselves victim to crocodiles include hyenas (3 out of 4 species reported as prey for Nile crocodiles, only the desert-dwelling brown (Hyaena brunnea) being excluded),[112][145] African wild dogs, jackals,[80][96] and cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus). I would also suggest deleting or editing your data so as not to mislead others. Show activity on this post. Luke Dollar, a conservation scientist who helps manage National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative, explains the hunt and explosive moment of predation. Nile crocodile bite force: 5000 psi [99] Nile crocodiles apparently frequently station themselves underneath breeding colonies of darters and cormorants and presumably snatch up fledgling birds as they drop to the water before they can competently escape the saurian, as has been recorded with several other crocodilians. Guggisberg (1972) saw multiple cases of predation on marabou storks (Leptoptilos crumenifer) and around Lake Turkana several may frequent heronries to pick off fledglings. [85], Larger fish, like catfish and freshwater bass, are preferred by adults more than 2.2 m (7 ft 3 in) in length. In general, big cats and crocodiles have a relationship of mutual avoidance. [2] Although capable of living in saline environments, this species is rarely found in saltwater, but occasionally inhabits deltas and brackish lakes. No..Actually The Great White Shark has the strongest bite force among all animals.. wheres your evidence, the killer whales jaw muscles are big but like a great white shark are very weak and are made for opening fast not shutting hard. That’s the highest bite force … [42][96] Since crocodiles are solitary hunters, the Nile crocodile is the only predator in Africa known to attack full-grown buffaloes alone, compared to the preferred pride attack method of lions.[142]. Arachnids such as Dolomedes water spiders are taken, but always secondarily to insects in Uganda and Zambia. Nests have been recorded seldom in concealed positions such as under a bush or in grasses, but normally in open spots on the bank. [194][195] Despite historic claims that the victims of Nile crocodile attacks are usually "women and children",[6] there is no detectable trends in this regard and any human, regardless of age, gender, or size is potentially vulnerable. [6][52], Evidence exists of Nile crocodiles from cooler climates, like the southern tip of Africa, being smaller, and may reach maximum lengths of only 4 m (13 ft 1 in). [82][83], After Nile crocodiles reach 2 m (6 ft 7 in), the significance of most invertebrates in the diet decreases precipitously. Lolong was the longest and heaviest ever caught in the wild, presently there are over hundreds of crocks over 7 metre or 22 ft in the wild in southern Philippines weighing over 2000lbs. Nearly 70% of the crocodiles examined by Cott (1961) had some remains of snails inside their stomachs. Don’t be to sure, all crocodiles have heavy armor across their bodies, my perspective is that the killer whale could try and bite a saltwater crocodile, but the armor would more then likely give it protection. 2. Crocodiles try to rip off and kill each other. Such clashes can be brutal affairs and can end in mortality but typically end with victor and loser still alive, the latter withdrawing into deep waters. and by the way weight doesn’t matter. Cassell Illustrated, 978-0713723823. The Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) is a large crocodilian native to freshwater habitats in Africa, where it is present in 26 countries. Parental care in Crocodilia, with special reference to, Hancock, James A.; Kushlan, James Anthony and Kahl, M. Philip (1992). The average size of the Nile crocodile is 6.1 metre and weight around 910 Kg. [3][7] The taking of commercially important fish, such as Tilapia, has been mentioned as a source of conflict between humans and crocodiles, and used as justification for crocodile-culling operations; however, even a primarily piscivorous crocodile needs relatively so little fish that it cannot deplete fish populations on its own without other (often anthropogenic) influences. Thiollay, J. M. (1989). Larger corvids and some non-wading water birds (i.e. It also sometimes referred to as the African crocodile, Ethiopian crocodile, common crocodile, or the black crocodile. [29][32] They have a four-chambered heart, although modified for their ectothermic nature due to an elongated cardiac septum, physiologically similar to the heart of a bird, which is especially efficient at oxygenating their blood. [7], The Nile crocodile possesses unique predation behavior characterized by the ability of preying both within its natural habitat and out of it, which often results in unpredicted attacks on almost any other animal up to twice its size. Adamson, J. Much of the contamination of crocodiles occurs when they consume rancid fish themselves killed by pollutants. (1993). More than half of the crocodiles observed by Cott (1961), if not disturbed, spent the hours from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm continuously basking with their jaws open if conditions were sunny. I guess you just have to weigh up what you think is most likely. [69], Generally, Nile crocodiles are relatively inert creatures, as are most crocodilians and other large, cold-blooded creatures. The immense bite force, which may be as high as 5,000 lbf (22,000 N) in large adults, ensures that the prey item cannot escape through the grip. i’m just going to set this straight, the salt water crocodile weights 900-1100 kg’s, was thicker and harder scales, is smarter (proven to be the smartest of all reptiles by scientist’s), has a much stronger bite (7,500 psi), is longer (5.5-7.5 meters) and is faster (in water). As it matures, Nile crocodiles become darker and the cross-bands fade, especially those on the upper-body. Due to its widespread occurrence and stable population trend, it has been listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List since 1996. (1956). The average estimated size of Nile crocodiles involved in fatal attacks is 3.5 m (11 ft 6 in). [3] Similarly, in Lake Baringo, the lungfish is the crocodile's main prey and the crocodile is the lungfish's primary predator. Pretty sure the Salty is both bigger, heavier and stronger than the Nile. Male Nile crocodiles are about 30 to 50 cm (12 to 20 in) longer on average at sexual maturity and grow more so than females after becoming sexually mature, especially expanding in bulk after exceeding 4 m (13 ft 1 in) in length. pelicans) can also take some young Nile crocodiles. The nostrils, eyes, and ears are situated on the top of the head, so the rest of the body can remain concealed under water. Once the eggs hatch, the female may lead the hatchlings to water, or even carry them there in her mouth, as female American alligators have been observed doing. Many fisherman and other workers who are not poverty-stricken will go out of their way to avoid waterways known to harbor large crocodile populations. Sybney, I understand and had the same dilemma when I read the comparisons. Saltwater Crocodiles are also known to kill Water Buffalo. The saltwater crocodile is considered a sister taxon of the Siamese and the Nile crocodile. [7][141] An additional case of predation on an adult black rhino was reportedly observed in northern Zambia. The Nile crocodile is a member of the animal class Reptilia, which contains the Orders Squamata (snakes and lizards), Testudines (tortoises, terrapins and turtles), Rhynchocephalia (the two tuatara species of New Zealand) and Crocodylia (crocodiles, including alligators).These are ancient reptile groups that are distantly related, although the Crocodylia are more closely related to birds. Occasionally, if regular food becomes scarce, both lions and the crocodile will steal kills on land from each other and, depending on size, will be dominant over one another. The Nile crocodile on average has a bite force significantly stronger at 1250 psi more so than the Saltwater croc. Gastropoda (4126 records per Cott) were taken much more than Lamellibranchiata (six records). More modestly sized fish are generally swallowed whole. Storrs G. W. (2003). Saltwater Crocodile Dubbed 'Croc-zilla' Spotted at Australian Harbor Croc Has Jaws Taped Shut in 'Deplorable' Act as Rescue Operation Launched 6-Foot-Long Crocodile … Most on line sources just follow Wikipedia blindly on these matters, but Wikipedia is often out of date or just plain wrong. Poole, Alan F., Rob O. Bierregaard and Mark S. Martell. National Geographic has exclusive video of a jaguar taking down a caiman in Brazil’s Pantanal wetlands, photos of which went viral earlier this month. The two-year-and-younger crocodiles may spend a surprising amount of time on land, as evidenced by the range of terrestrial insects found in their stomachs, and their lifestyle may resemble a semi-aquatic mid-sized lizard more so than the very aquatic lives of older crocodiles. [42][49] Graham and Beard (1968) hypothesized that, while females do continue to grow as do males throughout life, that past a certain age and size that females much over 3.2 m (10 ft 6 in) in length in Lake Turkana no longer breed (supported by the physiology of the females examined here); however, subsequent studies in Botswana and South Africa have found evidence of nesting females at least 4.1 m (13 ft 5 in) in length. [21] The Nile crocodile's current range of distribution extends from the regional tributaries of the Nile in Sudan and Lake Nasser in Egypt to the Cunene of Angola, the Okavango Delta of Botswana, and the Olifants River in South Africa. [166] Mammalian predators can take nearly as heavy of a toll, especially large mongooses such the Egyptian mongoose (Herpestes ichneumon) in the north and the water mongoose in the south of crocodile's range. For example, Herodotus recorded the species inhabiting Lake Moeris in Egypt. Species recorded include the Natal multimammate mouse (Mastomys natalensis), African marsh rat (Dasymys incomtus), common rufous-nosed rat (Oenomys hypoxanthus), and savanna swamp shrew (Crocidura longipes). Small, E. (2013). [7][186] A more contemporary study claimed the number of attacks by Nile crocodiles per year as 275 to 745, of which 63% are fatal, as opposed to an estimated 30 attacks per year by saltwater crocodiles, of which 50% are fatal. When the male hippo returned to the water, it was drowned and killed by the group of crocodiles amid "a truly terrifying commotion". Columbia University Press, New York. [49], In South Africa, Nile crocodiles are more easily observed in winter because of the extensive amount of time they spend basking at this time of year. This is rarely recorded in wild crocodiles, normally having been observed in cases where humans have mishandled crocodiles and put them through overly extended periods of physical struggling and stress.

However, compared to the narrow-snouted, streamlined gharial and false gharial, the Nile crocodile is rather more robust and ranks second to the saltwater crocodile in total average body mass among living crocodilians and third among all living reptiles - the massive leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea) has a mean body mass slightly less than that of an average mature male saltwater crocodiles. Crocs do eat bull sharks all the time though. The binomial name Crocodylus niloticus is derived from the Greek κρόκη, kroke ("pebble"), δρῖλος, drilos ("worm"), referring to its rough skin; and niloticus, meaning "from the Nile River". Nile crocodiles are absent from most of West and Central Africa, but range into the latter region in eastern and southern Democratic Republic of Congo, and along the Central African coastal Atlantic region (as far north to Cameroon). [92][93], When capturing large fish, they often drag the fish onto shore and swing their heads around to smash the fish onto the ground until it is dead or incapacitated. [7], Nile crocodiles are apex predators throughout their range. largely insufficient to produce sustainable populations of young crocodiles, on par with times prior to the peak of leather trading. The Nile crocodile is also widely distributed, with strong, documented populations in many countries in eastern and southern Africa, including Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Zambia and Zimbabwe. [7][160] In other areas, the nesting female may disappear upon potential disturbance which may allow the presence of both the female and her buried nest to escape unwanted detection by predators. The Great White refuses to let a Crocodile defeat so he tries to bite the Nile Crocodile, but it only bite the Nile Crocodile on the back. [80][96] Elsewhere, the waterbuck appears to be the most significant mammalian prey for large adult crocodiles, such as in Uganda and Zambia (although due to more sporadic general ungulate populations in those countries, ungulates are less common as prey than in some other countries), as well as in Hluhluwe–iMfolozi Park, South Africa. Nile crocodiles are opportunistic apex predators; a very aggressive species of crocodile, they are capable of taking almost any animal within their range. [118][119] No records of them hunting apes (other than humans) have been made, but based on a strong reluctance to cross waters with crocodiles and a violent reaction to the visual stimuli of crocodiles, chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and gorillas (Gorilla beringei) are thought to consider Nile crocodiles a serious threat. Smaller specimens can gallop, and even larger individuals are capable on occasion of surprising bursts of speed, briefly reaching up to 14 km/h (8.7 mph). I think the saltie wins because its a little bigger stronger meaner and has more powerful jaws, the only thing the nile has is that it has more thick skin than the saltie, the nile croc is more aggressive, it hunts bigger animals consistently, more muscular less fat, like comparing a lion with a tiger, a lion has the same advantages, little lighter but stronger more aggressive and territorial, don’t write back i know for a fact, Male crocs are territorial and fight. [42] The Nile crocodile has a reputation as a voracious and destructive feeder on freshwater fish, many of which are essential to the livelihoods of local fisherman and the industry of sport fishing. [153][154] Once a female has been attracted, the pair warble and rub the undersides of their jaws together. (1997). Some deaths of crocodiles appeared to have been caused by these dangerous saline levels and this one-time stronghold for breeding crocodiles has experienced a major population decline. Nile crocodiles of under two years are much more rarely observed than larger specimens, and more seldom seen than the same age young in several other types of crocodilian. Like all crocodiles they are sexually dimorphic, with the males up to 30% larger than the females, though the difference is even more in some species, like the saltwater crocodile. Still, it was difficult for someone to know who will win the fight. [147] Most conflicts over food occur near the water and can literally lead to a tug-of-war over a carcass that can end either way, although seldom is there any serious fighting or bloodshed between the large carnivores. [187] In comparison, lions, in the years from 1990 to 2006, were responsible for an estimated one-eighth as many fatal attacks on humans in Africa as were Nile crocodiles. How do you detemine that?? [7] Once their prey is dead, they rip off and swallow chunks of flesh. The jaws of a crocodile can be securely shut with several layers of duct tape.[117]Nile:6000psi. [18] The segregation of the West African crocodile (C. suchus) from the Nile crocodile has been supported by morphological characteristics,[17][19] studies of genetic materials[16][19] and habitat preferences. [7][27], Nile crocodiles usually dive for only a few minutes at a time, but can swim under water up to 30 minutes if threatened, and if they remain fully inactive, they can hold their breath for up to 2 hours (which, as aforementioned, is due to the high levels of lactic acid in their blood). However, when size differences are prominent, the predators may prey on each other. Alderton, D. (1998). The conservation situation is more grim in central and west Africa presumably for both the Nile and west African crocodiles. The nesting season can fall in nearly every month of the year. [7], The Nile crocodile mostly hunts within the confines of waterways, either attacking aquatic prey or terrestrial animals when they come to the water to drink or to cross. The Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) is a large crocodilian native to freshwater habitats in Africa, where it is present in 26 countries. Its place in the ecosystems it inhabits is largely unique, as it is the only large tetrapod carnivore that spends the majority of its life in water and hunting prey associated with aquatic zones. Nile crocodiles normally crawl along on their bellies, but they can also "high walk" with their trunks raised above the ground. In some areas, some number of baboons is taken, such as in Okavango Delta, where chacma baboons (Papio ursinus) are eaten and Uganda, where olive baboons (Papio anubis) are taken. Based on these findings, it has also been suggested that crocodiles may act as seed dispersers. The female digs a hole a few metres from the bank and up to 0.5 m (20 in) deep, and lays on average between 25 and 80 eggs. Adult males can reach sizes of up to 6 or 7 metres (20 to 23 feet), the largest … Aestivation has been recorded from May to August. [7][111], Considering the fact that crocodiles defecate in water, making scat analysis impossible, and that the examination of stomach contents is fairly difficult for which capturing of the animals individually is required for analysis, determining anything about the percentage of any specific food item in a crocodile's diet can be difficult. [187][188][189] Other wild animals responsible for more annual human mortalities either attack humans in self-defense, as do venomous snakes,[190] or are deadly only as vectors of disease or infection, such as snails,[191] rats[192] and mosquitos. 117 ] Nile:6000psi nests by scent as the name suggests, the Florida wild specimens are closely!
