Master fisherman with long, pointed snout
The Fish-eating Crocodile is in the crocodile family. However their eyes are a little different from other crocs. Their snouts are so long and pointed, great for fishing. They even have web feet and are super swimmers. They don't like land, and live their whole life in the water.
Their increase is up to us...
The Fish-eating Crocodile's enemy is dirty rivers. Factories near the river make the water dirty and The Fish-eating Crocodile is disappearing in a flash! Luckily, breeding is a success, but the Fish-eating Crocodile can't go back home to a dirty river. We must make a safe home and restore nature for the Fish-eating Crocodile!
