My favourite an­i­mal record…

World of Animals - - Wild Record Breakers -

“The salt­wa­ter croc­o­dile is the largest rep­tile on the planet. These pow­er­ful mod­ern-day di­nosaurs have been recorded grow­ing to over six me­tres (19.7 feet) long. They also have the strong­est jaw pres­sure of any an­i­mal at over 3,000 pounds per square inch [211 kilo­grams per square cen­time­tre] of bite force. These apex preda­tors have sur­vived for over 200 mil­lion years. Truly amaz­ing an­i­mals!”

Robert Ir­win, wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher and con­ser­va­tion­ist
