Tomistoma

  • 23rd September, 2022
  • The tomistoma is a large, shy and reclusive species of slender-snouted crocodile. It is a freshwater species which shares its habitat with two other types of crocodilians — the saltwater crocodile and the Siamese crocodile.
  • Its scientific name is Tomistoma Schlegelii. It is currently listed as Endangered on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species.
  • The tomistoma is native to Southeast Asia and distributed across part of Borneo, peninsular Malaysia and Sumatra. It is frequently associated with peat swamp forest.
  • It typically retreats from areas with a high degree of human activity but according to most studies increasing human intrusion into its habitat may be causing it to attack people.
