Gharials

There is only one known gharial species in the world, the Indian Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), and it is considered to be in critical danger of extinction. Gharials are the most unusual looking of all the Crocodylia with an extremely narrow snout only suitable for catching fish. Gharials are so adapted for living in water that they move with difficulty on land.
