Unlocking the Mysteries of Crocodile Mating!


Little is known about the mating system of Siamese crocodiles. However, the usual crocodilian breeding system is one of polygyny. This means that one male mates with more than one female. Breeding is during April and May, the time of the wet season. The female lays 20 to 50 eggs in a mound nest and then guards them. The eggs hatch after about 80 days, when the mother opens the nest and carries the hatchlings in her jaws to the water. 

It is unknown whether parental care is given after hatching. In captivity Siamese crocodiles will gain reproductive maturity at about 10 years old, but it is unknown whether this is also true in the wild.
