Gastric impaction in captive crocodiles (Crocodilus niloticus)


Gastric impaction in captive crocodiles (Crocodilus niloticus)



Journal of the South African Veterinary Association 53(4): 254



ISSN/ISBN: 1019-9128

PMID: 7182499

Five crocodiles kept in captivity for more than 4 years died within a period of 4 days. A post mortem examination of one showed that it had died from gastric impaction which had resulted from the feeding of guinea pigs. It was thought that the high ratio of hair to flesh in guinea pigs together with daily feeding cause the impaction.
