Once considered to be a subspecies of the New Guinea Crocodile, the Philippine Crocodile is only found in the Philippine islands. The Philippine Crocodile does not get as big as some of the saltwater crocodiles that are indigenous to the same area. This species of crocodile is one of the most severely threatened species around. The decline of this species was generally due to over exploitation. There are no more than 500-1000 of these wonderful animals living outside of captivity. The next 10 or so years will be extremely important to the survival of this animal.
