[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Philippine crocodile is a crocodile found only in the Philippines. In the Philippines, it is strictly prohibited to kill a crocodile, but its status is critically endangered from exploitation and unsustainable fishing methods, such as dynamite fishing.

Philippine crocodiles are relatively small, growing no more than 3 meters. The Philippine crocodile is only found on the islands of the Philippines. This species of crocodile is one of the most severely threatened species around. There are probably less than 100 non-hatchling Philippine crocodiles surviving in the wild.
