20 Incredibly Cool Crocodile Drawings For Kids

Facing a crocodile may be paralyzing, but not when it comes to these drawings!

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!

That fact, coupled with the drawing skills to be picked up, make these crocodile drawings an attractive afternoon activity.
