Had such a blast yesterday hanging out at  Fort Worth Zoo with @zoodreams @stevenviridis and @sancabulan. The Museum of Living Art is truly an incredible display of Reptile and Amphibian diversity and by far one of my favorite reptile collections I have seen. Seeing the Indian Gharials (Gavialis gangeticus), Decary’s Pygmy Chameleons (Brookesia decaryi) and the various Arboreal Alligator Lizards (Abronia spp.) was truly a treat as these three animals are extremely rare in US Zoos. It is also always a great time when you get to connect with new and old zoo friends even if you are debating who’s crocodile is bigger! ———————————————————————————#fortworthzoo #museumoflivingart #reptiles #zoo #texas #fortworth #reptilehouse #crocodile #gharial #chameleon #brookesia #brookesiadecaryi #conservationefforts #abronia #abroniagraminea #gavialisgangeticus #crocodylusporosus #saltwatercrocodile #exhibits #reptile #zoofriends #zoolife #zookeeper #herpetology #zoocollection #networking #diversity #rarespecies #endangeredspecies #conservation

He is an adult male and gets along fine with the red-crowned roof turtles in his enclosure. Nowhere else in India can you see a gentle giant like him underwater.

A gharial male has a bulbous growth on the tip of his snout called a "ghara" which means “pot” in Hindi. MCBT did some of the first surveys for gharial in North India in the late 1970s. The situation at that time was dismal, with an estimated 150 – 200 adults left in their entire range.

Os gavialídeos consistem de apenas duas espécies, o gavial (Gavialis gangeticus) e o falso-gavial (Tomistoma schlegelii), únicos representantes vivos de seus gêneros. Ambos são nativos da Índia e península da Malaia.
 Os gavialídeos são grandes répteis semi-aquáticos, semelhantes aos crocodilos, porém com um focinho muito mais fino, utilizado para capturar peixes, já que eles não possuem a força na mandíbula para capturar grandes presas.

Gharial // Gavialis Gangeticus 
Male gharials have a pot like structure on their snouts called gharas. These crocodilians are the only ones you can distinguish between a male and a female by looking at them. Both these pictures are of males. The first male is Garfield who's in the underwater enclosure in croc bank. The second one is of Robin, who got into a fight with another male and lost the tip of his snout. This is normal in gharial males where due to fights they lose their gharas and snouts.

It's been almost a month since I have been back to #Vancouver, but I'm still thinking of #Rajasthan.  Here is another look at the #gharial swimming away from our boat. The largest subpopulation of this critically endangered fish eating crocodilan is about 200 individuals in the #chambal #river. There are other smaller subpopulations in the #gandak and the #ramganga rivers.

✴ These critically endangered crocodilians prefer deep parts of river with little current and congregate on sand bars.
📌They are endemic to freshwater rivers of India including the Ganges, Indus, and the Mahandi river systems. 🇮🇳

The gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), also known as fish-eating crocodile. And is native to the northern part of the indian subcontinent.
The gharial is one of the longest of all living crocodilians, with a body length of 350–450 cm (140–180 in). Male gharials reach a body length of up to 600 cm (240 in) and have a distinctive boss at the end of the snout, which resembles an earthenware pot known in hindi as ghara.
The global wild gharial population is estimated at fewer than 235 individuals, which are threatened by loss of riverine habitat, depletion of fish resources, and entanglement in fishing nets. As the population has declined drastically since the 1930s, the gharial is listed as #criticallyendangered  on the @redlist_of_ecosystems. 
It once inhabited all the major river systems of the Indian subcontinent, from the #indusriver in the west to the #irrawaddyriver in the east. Its distribution is now limited to only 2% of its historical range. It inhabits foremost flowing rivers with high sand banks that it uses for basking and building nests.
Adults mate in the cold season. The young hatch before the onset of the monsoon.
