On coloring pages for children, crocodiles are depicted as kind and cute creatures. Also, artists often paint a coloring of a crocodile with a bird sitting on it.
There is a legend about the friendship of a crocodile and a small bird. An Egyptian runner flies into the crocodile's open mouth and cleans food debris from its teeth. And the crocodile is good that his teeth are being brushed and the bird is having dinner.
But in fact, there is not a single piece of evidence regarding this. There is a version that the bird catches flies that flock to the remains of meat. And the crocodile opens its mouth to cool down.
Moreover, crocodiles do not need to brush their teeth, as their teeth change throughout almost their entire life. It turns out that during its life a crocodile can change at least 3000 teeth.
