How Big Can It Get? Croczilla

The saltwater crocodile is the largest of all living reptiles, and one of the few animals that's a documented man-eater. Its massive jaws can slice through its prey with a bite force approaching 4,000 pounds! We join a research team in Florida, where experts believe the croc's bite force may hold the secret to its growth. Then, all the way across the world in the Sahara desert, we examine the fossilized remains of one of the largest crocodilians ever to walk the earth, known as “super croc.”
