Rescue,Rehabilitation & Release

Crocodiles Rescue Initiatives

These 2 Juvenile Nile Crocodiles are also resident at A.R.C, both rescued from a Crocodile Farm that closed down in the vicinity. The inclosed for the Crocodiles has temperature regulated water as they are ectothermic.

Due to the extreme cold experienced in these parts a Crocodile's core temperature cannot drop below 12 degrees or it could be fatal, for this reason we regulate water to a constant 26.6 degrees. Their shelter that they sleep in has heating panels installed, as well as  underground heating to keep them warm during the nights or that cold winter days.
