Agonistic Behavior of Captive Saltwater Crocodile, Crocodylus Porosus in Kota Tinggi, Johor
The study shows that C. porosus was more aggressive during daylight, feeding time and non-feeding time in breeding enclosure as compared to non-breeding pond where it is only aggressive during the nighttime.

Dietary Selenomethionine Administration in the American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis): Hepatic and Renal Se Accumulation and Its Effects on Growth and Body Condition
The results demonstrate alligators are capable of accumulating high levels of Se through trophic transfer, and the positive effects of accumulation on growth may demonstrate Se essentiality, whereas the negative effects on condition may demonstrate toxicity.


Crocodylus johnstoni in a Controlled-Environment Chamber: a Raising Trial
Crocodylus johnstoni hatchlings were raised in a constant-environment chamber of the type used for Alligator mississippiensis by Joanen and McNease, but may not be as suited to this style of raising as are some other crocodilians.
Growth rate and plasma corticosterone levels in juvenile alligators maintained at different stocking densities
Crowding of juvenile alligators inhibits maximum growth and that the subsequent stress associated with this crowding results in chronically elevated plasma corticosterone, which shows a strong negative correlation with change in body weight.
