A cave crocodile is a nasty creature that lives in water-filled underground areas such as underground rivers and underground pools. Being big and nasty tempered, it will try to ambush your fisherdwarves and anyone who's stupid enough to try drinking from its habitat. Your animals can also be in danger. Unlike the giant toad and giant olm, cave crocodiles will breed after a number of years, potentially leading to a "crocsplosion" effect, which makes your water source effectively unusable until they are cleared out.
