The crocodile breeding season is from January to Could. For males, the onset of sexual maturity happens once they attain about 3 meters in size and for females 2 to 2.5 meters in size. It takes about 10 years for each female and male crocodiles to succeed in these lengths underneath regular situations. Through the mating season, males appeal to females by banging their noses in water, spraying water from their noses, and making numerous vocalizations. Bigger males of a group are usually extra profitable at attracting females. As soon as they handle to draw a feminine, the couple warms up and rubs the underside of their jaws collectively.

After the crocodiles mate, the feminine crocodile lays about 20-40 eggs every year in a nest close to the riverbank. It covers the nest with leaves and different vegetation. The rotting vegetation retains the eggs heat and moist. Incubation temperature for crocodile eggs is 28-32 levels, relative humidity is 95-100%, incubation interval is 70-80 days. The feminine stays within the nest and guards the eggs till the eggs hatch. When the fry are able to hatch, they make sounds. The feminine alligator opens the nest and carries the chicks into the water. They instantly begin consuming crab, shrimp and bugs. About half of the cubs die within the first yr attributable to predators.
