Crocodile Teeth Brushed In Nepalese Farm To Rescue Endangered Animals

Crocodile Teeth Brushed
Workers at Nepal's Chitwan National Park crocodile farm must make sure the baby reptiles' teeth are clean.

These crocodiles get good dental coverage at a croc farm in Nepal's Chitwan National Park.

In an effort to rescue the Gharial crocodile from its endangered status, caretakers at the farm look after 15 of the reptiles -- two males, 13 females -- and that includes regular teeth cleanings.

The babies get their teeth brushed to prevent fungus from growing in their fangs. But once they're all grown up, the tooth care stops and they're released into the wild.
