Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus)
Cold blooded, usually found next to water sources basking in the sun. Crocodile offer a challenging hunt, as they have keen senses, and they show the ability to record foot vibrations on the ground of intruders close to their territory. Best hunted over bait. Crocodile offer the best retrieval opportunity during the dry months when water levels are low. The distinction between male and female is difficult – yet, a Croc measuring 12 feet + is usually considered a good male representative. The distance between the eye and the centre of the nostril (in inches) often equals the length of the Croc in feet.
Heart shots are vital. Lung shots do kill, but retrieval may be difficult as the Croc disappears below the surface of the water. Broadside shots are often impossible due to the front legs obstructing the vitals. Quartering away and shots from above the Croc is best.
