Crocodiles Under the Skin
Saltwater crocodiles are one of the most successful predators the world has ever seen. They out-lasted the dinosaurs and survived a catastrophic extinction event that wiped out the dominant species on the planet. A 200 million year-old biological design, perfectly engineered for the modern world. But how can a creature this primitive still be state-of-the-art?
The answer lies beneath its skin - and that's where we take you. A rare dissection opens up the inner workings of this bio-engineered machine. The saltie's weaponry: perhaps the most powerful jaws since T-Rex.
How do crocs navigate through the murkiest water? How can they survive hideous injuries and never suffer infection? Can they learn? Remarkable scientific experiments conducted exclusively for us prove that salties risk self-destruction every time they attack.
