The Dwarf Crocodile

The Dwarf Crocodile is a little species of crocodile that is locally discovered in the rainforests of West Africa. They are the smallest species of crocodile in all over the world and is also one of the most unique with a small, broad snout and tough scales that wrap their entire black body (most crocodiles do not have such protective covering scales on their underside). These traits have led to the Dwarf Crocodile being identified by a number of diverse names as well as the Broad-Snouted Crocodile, the Black Crocodile and the Bony Crocodile. There are two identified species of them which are the West African Dwarf Crocodile and the Congo Dwarf Crocodile which vary faintly in not just their place, but also in their look and behaviour. Although Dwarf Crocodiles are usually found in parts of their natural verity, their numbers in others have declined mostly due to territory loss and hunting.
