Crocodiles are one of the fiercest apex predators that exist in the wild. They possess one of the strongest jaws in the animal kingdom, biting with a force of an extraordinary 3,700 pounds per square inch.
By comparison, that’s almost 18 times stronger than a human jaw! No wonder kids are fascinated by these dinosaurs.
Your kids don’t need to worry about these 19 crocodile drawings biting them though because they’re easy and, most importantly, fun to do.
