Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A huge, predatory reptile found in coastal marshes and river deltas. It ambushes its prey at the shore and uses its great size to drag the victim under and drown them.

Saltwater crocodiles are large exotic reptiles. Found in many wetland biomes, these creatures have a considerable pet value and are tamable.

Saltwater crocodiles have the greatest egg-laying potential of any animal in the game, with 20-70 eggs per clutch. This makes them ideal animals to use for egg production. Considering the value of a single crocodile and the benefits of having 100+ tamed crocs watching over your dwarves, a breeding pair can be quite valuable. Taking two years to reach full size, they could power a valuable meat industry for a patient player.

Though wild crocs generally do not wade far from the water's edge, they can be a major hazard to any dwarf whose job takes him near water. Fortunately, crocs are hard to provoke and most of the time will not chase your dwarves far.
