Answer: False Gharials (Tomistoma schlegelii) are one of the world’s most endangered crocodilians due to habitat destruction, egg poaching and killing. They are sparsely found throughout the remote river systems of Borneo, Sumatra and Malaysia. The Tomistoma and Gharial are the only two species still alive within the family Gavialidae, and are magnificent toothsome predators that need our protection!
