The Philippine Crocodile is a relatively small freshwater crocodile. Although much is still unknown about the species. Fewer than 200 adults are estimated to persist in the wild and the population may be declining despite re-introduction attempts. Historical harvest of this species for international skin trade between 1945 and about 1970 has now ceased. Habitat use by rural people, persecution, and entanglement in fishing nets are the main threats to the Philippine Crocodile.
