Tumblr Thread: Crocodile Dads Are The Best

We could never imagine that we'd ever say "awwww" about a crocodile. They are so scary, and omg, if we ever met one in real life, we would run away shaking. But, time and time again, the internet manages to convince us that these terrifying animals are not that bad. From the time that we all celebrated the 120th birthday of the oldest known Nile crocodile, to the time that we all giggled and laughed and felt embarrassed about the hilarious way that crocodiles actually look like underwater, to the time that we fell in love with crocodile skinks because they look like tiny dragons

And now, through this tumblr thread, we learn that crocodile dads are super protective of their little babies and carry them around on their backs - in groups of hundreds. It's adorable. Crocodiles are adorable. Shocking, right?

See the lump on his nose? Only males have those. It's actually where they got their name; the lumps tend to resemble earthenware cooking pots called ghara. What we're seeing here is a really good dad. This is par for the course for gharials, though-'

What Crocodiles Look Like Underwater (Funny Viral Tweets)

Crocodiles are terrifying, right? Whenever you're watching movies and a crocodile comes into the frame, you know things are about to go down. God forbid you see one of them in real life - running is probably the best option if you do. Floating there in the water, not moving an inch, looking all... menacing. We've all seen these incredibly cool animals on land, but have you ever considered what they look like underwater? 

Answer: the look absolutely hilarious. And twitter has just discovered that information too, making this totally random thing about a totally random animal go viral, causing us all to laugh at something that is nothing but pure. Of course, if you want to see crocodiles being adorable, you need to look no further than baby crocodiles making cute noises that sound like laser guns.

Celebrating The 120th Birthday Of The Oldest Known Nile Crocodile

Happy 120th  birthday to the oldest known Nile crocodile in captivity - Henry! 

It truly is a rarity for these gorgeous crocodiles to get to 120 years of age, so, to celebrate, the Crocworld Conservation Centre on the KZN South Coast threw Henry the Nile crocodile a birthday party! Henry and the staff celebrated his birthday together, with the staff eating birthday cake, and Henry getting his favorite of all meaty snack. 

The crocodile arrived at the Crocworld Conservation Centre in 1985 when he was at the young age of 85. Today, he is five meters long, 700 kilograms in weight, and he is the father of over 10,000 offspring with his six female cohabitants. So, one can easily say that getting older has definitely not slowed Henry down even one bit.

Being the oldest known Nile crocodile in captivity, Henry has got many, many more years of leisure, relaxations (and a good time with the ladies) in his wonderful sanctuary. On top of all of his other very impressive achievements, he has also been listed at the second oldest crocodile in the world, with the number 1 spot having been taken by Mr. Freshie who was 140 years when he passed in 140. 

We wish Henry many more birthdays in the future, and may he break Mr. Freshie's record and live long beyond that as well.

Crocodile Skinks Look Like Tiny Baby Dragons

We have always wondered what life would be like if huge, terrifying dragons were flying in our skies like in movies or stories, but we have never realized that actually dragons are real and they live in our world already. Well, almost. They're actually tiny crocodile skinks, but they totally look like dragons, just of the cut variety rather than the scary variety.

Crocodiles kind of look like dragons already, let's be real. And for some reason, we don't give the royal dragon-like love and respect that they deserve. The fact that these crocodiles are so cute and tiny is only a bonus really, and it's the best bonus of all.
