Other than humans do adult crocodiles have any predators?

    Not really, large herbivores like elephants and hippos can pose a serious threat though. Panthers are sometimes able to take down crocs up to seven feet but a fully mature 14 foot half ton croc is a different story. They are not invincible and are particularly vulnerable when they are young. Their main weakness is that their stamina is very low compared with mammals. There is even one instance of two river otters dancing around a black caiman until it grew so exhausted they were able to eat it’s tail while it was still alive!
