Description

For information, a guide saw a young crocodile in 2015 at Guelta d'Archeï, which proves that, despite the environmental difficulties, these species manage to reproduce.
In 2006 they were counted at 9 individuals.
In the early 2000s, a study conducted by scientists revealed that these species mainly fed on camel droppings. Like what we must believe in the adaptability of nature.
Fortunately, the Toubou people who live in northern Chad consider these crocodiles to be sacred.
