The crocodiles that appear in the franchise are most likely Nile Crocodiles, a species of crocodile that resides in Africa. Like other variations of its species, Nile Crocodiles have short legs, long tails, and scaly hides. Their coloration ranges from dark green to brownish-bronze. All Nile Crocodiles have green eyes. Males can grow to be up to 16 feet long and weigh 730 kilograms.

While a crocodile is young, it will feed on insects. As it grows older, it will attempt to take on larger prey, such as fish, amphibians, and small reptiles. Even upon reaching adulthood, a crocodile will still feed on fish or amphibians as a side meal. When desiring a bigger bite to eat, Nile Crocodiles usually target birds, reptiles, and mammals.  Among the mammals, crocodiles will feed on antelope, warthog, wildebeest, and zebra.

Nile Crocodiles use their bodies and tails to herd fish towards the bank, where they devour them with quick jerks of their heads. When stalking large prey, crocodiles will hide in the shadows and wait for the opportune moment to jerk out of the water and make a killing bite to the victim's neck. Occasionally, crocodiles will hunt in groups, but the dominant male always gets to eat first.
