Freshwater crocodiles from the Philippines can be found in ponds, marshes, and minor rivers. These crocodiles spend their days relaxing in the sun to warm themselves up because they have cold blood. They open their jaws to let out heat when they become too hot. The Philippine crocodile is considered the most endangered crocodile species in the world, with a population of only 100 individuals.
The fact that this particular type of crocodile consumes ill fish more frequently than healthy ones in its native environment is noteworthy. By proportionately preying on common fish, it enhances the quality of the fish stock and maintains a healthy population of those fish.
