What makes the Nile crocodile, one of nature’s most ferocious and fearsome predators, tick? The latest factual program to make use of the “dissecting really big animals” template brings together two doctors – one, an expert in animal neuroscience, and the other, in biomechanics – to take their knives and scalpels to a crocodile cadaver and unearth the secrets hidden within. From their solar-heated skin to their magnificent jaws, lined with receptors more sensitive than a human fingertip, iCrocodile dives deep into the biology of the second largest reptile in the world.
