However Crocodiles have skin that is thick and hard for a bullet to penetrate which makes it hard to shoot and kill a Crocodile.

However with a powerful enough gun and a good enough shot you could shoot and kill a crocodile.

Although crocodiles are considered bulletproof but they are more slightly bullet resistant than full on bulletproof.

A crocodile can usually survive most gunshots to them but if done correctly then a crocodile can still be shot and killed.

They have even been known to eat humans from time to time as well, but more on that later!
