Crocodiles are targeted for their hides, flesh, fat, and talons. The excessive capture of this animal has resulted in a reduction of its number in natural habitats. While not a novel concept, the practice of breeding this particular animal in captivity is an emerging industry in certain regions of the globe. Crocodiles have been cultivated in farms since the early 20th century. Most of these farms were tourist destinations that housed captive wild alligators or crocodiles. The decline of natural populations resulted in the implementation of prohibitions regarding their exploitation.

The objective of crocodile farming operations is to get skins, meat, and other items without causing undue strain on wild populations. Prior to making any financial investment, it is crucial to thoroughly understand the distinct characteristics of this particular animal. The purpose of this review is to analyze these attributes and educate farmers on the difficulties, disadvantages, and benefits of crocodile farming, with a focus on their biology and current farming practices.
