Crocosaurus Cove; Fun crocodile facts

Crocs have remained unchanged for between 80 to 100 million years, depending on who you speak to. The reasons for that are their excellent hearing, eyesight – during day or night – and sense of smell. Even if they can’t see, hear, or smell you, they have what are called dermal pressure sensors, which are on every scale of the body – there are hundreds on the head – and are about the size of a pinhead. They can sense vibrations through those. It’s believed they can feel a heartbeat in the water up to 1km away.
