"Mom of a Croc" is the 1st episode of the Wild Krats TV series.


Chris and Martin are determined to prove to Aviva that there’s more to crocodiles than their reputation as scary brutes. They use an egg disguise, created by the young inventor, to infiltrate a crocodile nest for an insider’s look at the challenging journey of the infant crocs. 

Learning Goals Edit

Kids learn the importance of heat in the life cycle of the croc and that heat can even move from one object to another by a process called conduction. They also learn that many animal mom's aren't so scary as they seem and are just defending their kids.
