Who knew crocodiles could be so incredibly cute! It was so cool to see these fascinating baby West African dwarf crocodiles with my own eyes! When I watched the video of them hatching back in November, I was amazed. It was a momentous occasion since it was the first hatching of this species in all of the San Diego Zoo’s history of 101 years. There were a total of 14 dwarf crocodile babies, so these 3 have 11 siblings!
For more on these little crocs, there’s a wonderful article in the March issue of ZooNooz, and check out the links below.
