Crocs: Ancient Predators in a Modern World
Crocs have flourished for 200 million years. Now you can explore the complex lives of crocodilians—a group of reptiles that includes crocodiles, alligators, caimans, and gharials—in a new exhibition featuring live species, life-sized dioramas, and interactive exhibits.
Ancient crocs came in a huge variety of body shapes, from dolphin-like oceanic hunters to heavily armored vegetarians.
From tooth to tail, modern crocodiles are biological marvels, with rugged bodies, keen senses, and incredible strength.
See four live species, including American alligator hatchlings and a forest-dwelling crocodile.
Crocs: Ancient Predators in a Modern World is curated by Mark Norell, Macaulay Curator and Chair of the Division of Paleontology.
Crocs: Ancient Predators in a Modern World was created by Peeling Productions at Clyde Peeling’s REPTILAND.
