This project assessed the incidence of different causes of juvenile saltwater crocodile deaths on an Australian crocodile farm. In addition, a pilot histopathology study was conducted to determine if there are any primary causes for runting in captive saltwater crocodiles.
This information is targeted at Australian crocodile producers to enhance their production efficiency by reducing juvenile mortalities, particularly from runting.
