Top best answers to the question «Why do crocodiles not open their mouths when they are underwater»

  • Crocodiles can't open their mouth underwater therefore can't attack underwater. Crocodiles have a palatal valve at the back of their mouth, which closes when underwater. However crocodiles need to be in shallow water or on land to swallow food without taking in water.
