HUNT, R.H. (1973).

Breeding Morelet's crocodile at Atlanta Zoo.

International Zoo Yearbook, 13:103-105.


In 1971, for the first time in captivity, we observed our Morelet's crocodiles Crocodylus moreletii establishing territories, mating, building nest mounds, laying viable eggs and assisting their young from the nest. Our colony was obtained in July 1965 in the Mexican state of Yucatan as juveniles.
