Orinoco Crocodile

Crocodylus intermedius

Description:

A new resident at the Gladys Porter Zoo. An amazing pair of crocs - had lived their lives in a mans basement from the time he smuggled them into Canada in his jacket until his death. They had never seen the sun. They remind me of the "bad" crocs in that old Disney cartoon The Rescuers

Deformed snouts are not that uncommon in captive crocs, especially in those living under poor conditions.
