Marsh Crocodile Gentle Jaws The female crocodile makes an exceptionally good mother. She digs a hole to lay eggs. After that, she keeps an eye on the nest for the two months that are required for the eggs to hatch. At times, she does not even eat for these two months. She waits anxiously for the "umph, umph" sound of the baby crocodile from inside the egg. Upon hearing the first sounds, she scrapes the earth away from the nest. The mother crocodile then carries the young to the water in her mouth. Sometimes, the father also provides the ferry service. The jaws that could break the legs of a deer can be gentle enough to crack the egg without hurting the baby.
