Cuban crocodile is a subspecies that typically grows up to 10 feet long. They can run of speeds between 15 to 22 mph.

Recent studies have revealed that crocodiles might look lazy and slow sunning on the bank, they can easily pick up speed when necessary, and what's more astonishing is that they can gallop or bound like a horse or a dog.

A gallop is a four-beat sequence whereby the fore and hindlimbs take turns landing.
