Crocodile Galloping

The saltwater crocodile is an aggressive cold-blooded, amphibious, carnivorous, reptile-like animal, with scaly skin and a broad snout crammed with pointed teeth.

A galloping crocodile is a terrifying sight indeed. This lumbering beast can propel its body at speeds of up to 18kph. It does this by lifting the front of its body up and throwing its front limbs out and forward as the hind limbs thrust the body forward. It then lands on its front limps first and repeats the process.
