We will learn about the order of the Crocodilians, possibly the most feared order on Earth! Crocodilians are amazing primitive, yet successful, animals. They have been around since the dinosaurs but are facing their biggest challenge surviving today because of us! It is important we all learn about and respect these creatures because human ignorance may ultimately be killing the crocodilians.
