Up to 80 young crocodiles can hatch from a clutch of crocodile eggs.
In the shadow of the agave, a young crocodile just hatched from the egg. As long as it is small, it will be protected by its mother from predators such as monitor lizards and birds of prey. The young ones go on the hunt from the start and eat everything that fits into their mouths. Once they have become fully grown crocodiles, they no longer have any enemies to fear.
