I'm trying to find information on extant crocodile or alligator populations and the minimum mean annual temperature in which they live and breed. I've tried our library with no luck.
What I need to know is what is the lowest mean annual temperature today in which crocodiles or alligators populations live in (Celcius please). The mean annual temperature of the northern range of the American Alligator Alligator mississippiensis would be ideal for my requirements.
