The Siamese crocodile is a freshwater crocodile native to Asia. Little is known about this critically endangered species, which has already been eradicated from many regions. We do know that in the wild they prefer slow moving waters like swamps, rivers, and lakes. Both male and female Siamese crocodiles look after newly hatched babies, and uniquely, this species is known to live together as a family unit.
