Crocodylia is a unique order of extant reptiles, which are part of a group of animals (Crocodylomorpha) that have a natural history extending back over 200 million years! Throughout their existence they have tried many different bodyforms and lifestyles. Today's living representatives of the crocodylomorph line are rather conservative compared to other contemporary reptiles, but this has not stopped them from becoming top predators in much of their domain.
A list of links to each separate family of crocodylian can be found below, followed by the genus and species. For general information about the group, cick on the links above.
