Exceeded in size only by the Saltwater Crocodile, Gavials can grow up to 6 meters long. The Gavial thrives in deep rivers. They're powerful swimmers but graceless on land, and will only leave the water to bask in the sun or nest. They cannot pick themselves up, so they can't walk (Due to their incompetent leg muscles), but rather belly slide to get around on land.
Adults feed on almost solely fish, but some have been found to eat dead or decaying animals. The young eat larvae, insects, and small frogs. The Gavial is most famously known for its long, narrow snout, which has been evolutionized that way in order to be optimum for catching fish. Their mating season is from November to December and well into January, while nesting and laying eggs take place in March, April, and May because the shore is more dry during those months. The female tends to deposit 30-50 eggs, and after about ninty days they hatch. It hasn't been seen yet if the mother helps her babies into the water, but she does protect and watch over them for a few days after they're born.
