Description:
Looks fearful but ironically it should be the one fearing us. This magnificent beast, known as Marsh Mugger crocodile-मगर गोही, surviving from the era of the dinosaurs may not survive this decade. Because of increasing habitat loss, water pollution and over fishing this crocodile along with others are on the brink of extinction.We as human beings have the power and capability to save this living dinosaur. Let this reptile survive even the human era.
