Orange cave crocodiles may be mutating into a new species

Scientists led by the Institute of Research for Development in Marseille found about 30 specimens in the cave, including 10 orange crocodiles.

They suspect more crocodiles remain hidden in the depths of the cave’s system of rooms, which are filled with water.

The team said new genetic tests show the isolated group may be branching off from their African dwarf cousins.
