The Nile crocodile is found throughout most of Africa. As its name suggests, it is present in the Nile River.  Nile crocodiles can be found in rivers, lakes, waterholes, mangrove swamps, estuaries, and freshwater marshes. They are mostly aquatic, but travel easily on land. During the wet season they travel long distances on land, returning when the floodwaters subside. During the day they can be found basking along riverbanks with their mouths open. While they bask, birds can enter their mouths and clean their teeth. They are carnivorous and their diet varies from fish to prey as large as zebra.
