    Austrailian saltwater crocodiles are the largest reptiles in the world. Males can be up to 6 or 7 meters long. Females are generally about 3 meters long.

    Australian freshwater crocodiles are only about 2-3 meters long, and Nile crocodiles from Africa can be up to 5.5 meters long.

    The saltwater crocodile is the largest of all living reptiles. It’s muzzle is longer than the mugger crocodile, and is twice the lenght of its breadth at the base. An adult male saltwater crocodile can weight between 1,300-2,000 pounds and can grow between 13-18 feet in length. The largest saltwater crocodile on record was estimated to be at about 20.7 feet long and weighed 2,600 pounds. 

    Freshwater crocodiles on the other hand are relatively small compared to the saltwater crocodile. Males grow around 3 meters long while females reach a maximum length of 2.1 meters.
