will often pull their prey into the water and drown them
before they begin to eat. They use their huge jaws to rip
the meat off of their prey and then they gulp it down.
However, in recent years it is not the crocodile that has
been winning the battle for life.
Bringing crocodiless back from the edge of extinction and
returning them to former abundance is one of the true success
stories in international wildlife conservation, a success
story that owes much of its credit to the Crocodile Specialist
Group (CSG), an international network of people working
to conserve the world's 23 species of crocodilians.
