Item #SS364

Dwarf Crocodile Skull - 8 Inches (Replica)
Osteolaemus tetrapis

The smallest of all crocodile species, dwarf crocodiles have been known to reach 6 feet in length, though the average is only 5 feet, compared to 15 feet in larger crocs. Found in western central Africa, the dwarf crocodile has developed a heavily armored neck and back to protect from predators, which are more dangerous to the smaller reptile. During the day, crocs dig burrows in riverbeds to escape the sun and wait for night when they begin hunting. Like all crocs, dwarf crocodiles are ambush hunters, waiting for prey to move close before quickly and fatally striking.

This museum quality replica is exactingly cast from an outstanding natural specimen, and hand-finished to match the original. Made in California using polyurethane resin to capture the finest details.
