wikipedia said...
Philippine crocodile (Crocodylus mindorensis) is a crocodile found only in the Philippines.[1] It is also known as the Mindoro crocodile and the Philippine freshwater crocodile. In the Philippines, it is strictly prohibited to kill a crocodile, but its status is critically endangered from exploitation and unsustainable fishing methods,[2] such as dynamite fishing.[3] Conservation methods are being taken by the Dutch/Filipino Mabuwaya foundation,[4] the Crocodile Conservation Society and the Zoological Institute of HerpaWorld in Mindoro.

The Philippine crocodile is a relatively small freshwater crocodilian endemic to the Philippines. Philippine crocodiles are relatively small, growing no more than 3 meters. They have a relatively broad snout and they have thick bony plates on its back(heavy dorsal armor). Females are slightly smaller than males. Philippine crocodiles are golden-brown in color, while it grows darker as it matures.
