Gabon's Cave-dwelling Dwarf Crocodiles Feed on Bats and Crickets

1 post in this topic

~ This research article from the African Journal of Ecology and an explanatory article from New Scientist describe Osteolaemus tetraspis, Dwarf Crocodile, living in caves in Gabon.

Bat guano in the water causes the crocodile hide to turn orange. Juvenile crocodiles living in the caves show particularly strong body mass.
