About This Project
Saltwater crocodiles are the world's largest reptile and an apex predator. The goal of this study is to monitor, via satellite tagging, the behaviour by which this cryptic species regulates its body temperature in Sabah, Malaysia. This investigation will give insight into basking site selection, frequency of use, duration of stay, and the possible impact of habitat degradation. Work such as this is critical to future conservation and management.
