Crocodiles have long jaws with teeth that are exposed even when its mouth is closed, but although it has a powerful bite, it cannot chew and this presents problems when dealing with large prey such as zebras, wildebeest and buffalos. The Nile crocodile manages these by dragging them under water and then spinning around to tear off chunks of flesh.
