How about this fella?

In Today's Daily Jigsaw Puzzle, we meet the saltwater crocodile, also known as the estuarine crocodile or "salty." It is the largest of all living reptiles and a formidable predator native to the coastal regions of northern Australia, Southeast Asia, and the eastern coast of India. These crocodiles are well-adapted to salt and freshwater environments, allowing them to inhabit rivers and estuaries and even venture into the open ocean.

Male saltwater crocodiles can reach lengths of up to 7 meters (23 feet), though sizes of around 5 meters (16 feet) are more common. They have a robust build, a broad body, and a large head with strong jaws filled with conical teeth, capable of delivering one of the most powerful bites in the animal kingdom. Their skin is thick and rugged, with a dark, mottled pattern that provides camouflage in their murky water habitats.

Saltwater crocodiles are apex predators and opportunistic carnivores, their diet ranging from fish and birds to larger mammals like monkeys, wild boar, and occasionally even buffalo.

Saltwater crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus) belong to a lineage dating back millions of years, with crocodilians first emerging around 200 million years ago during the Late Triassic period. They have evolved through numerous mass extinctions since then. The lineage of the modern saltwater crocodile split from other crocodiles about 12 to 16 million years ago, during the Miocene epoch. This makes them one of the oldest and most successful reptile species, demonstrating significant evolutionary adaptability and resilience.

Their form and ecological role have been stable for millions of years, classifying them as living fossils and exemplary predators in aquatic and terrestrial environments.

Human encounters with these crocodiles can be dangerous due to their size and aggressive nature, especially if they feel threatened or are protecting their territory, so we'll keep to looking at images like this Daily Jigsaw Puzzle ♥
