Looks like a gharial...but it's not!  This is the False gharial, classified as a freshwater crocodile. It is found in Malaysia, Sumatra, and Borneo. Check out the differences close-up in the snouts of the False gharial and the real gharial below.  What characteristics of the true crocodile do you see in the False gharial on the left?*
