Skip to comments.Some Crocodile Species can Climb Trees: Research
Posted on 02/12/2014 5:09:42 PM PST by george76
The four tree-climbing species are Australian freshwater crocodiles, American crocodiles, Central African slender-snouted crocodiles and Nile crocodiles.
The height up to which these species could climb depended on their size. As per the researchers, smaller crocodiles were able to climb more higher than the bigger ones. Some were able to climb four to five meters high.
In addition to climb trees, earlier research on crocodilians, including crocodiles, caimans and alligators, revealed that they use tools like twigs and branches to trap birds. The reptiles hold a twig to gain attention of nesting birds towards itself. As soon as the bird gets attracted, the reptile attacks it.
They climb the trees to not only trail prey but also to regulate the temperature of their body.
