The nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) is a large African crocodile species that is the second largest reptile in the world after the saltwater crocodile. Nile crocodiles are quite widespread throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, occurring mostly in the central, eastern, and southern regions of the continent and lives in different types of aquatic environments such as lakes, rivers and marshlands. Although capable of living in saline environments, this species is rarely found in saltwater, but occasionally inhabits deltas and brackish lakes.
