The Mugger Crocodile (Crocodylus palustris) is one of the widely distributed crocodilian species in the world. The mugger, the most adapting species is found across various types of habitats ranging from rivers to large lakes, small puddles to village tanks and road side ditches. Mugger Crocodile is a threatened species in India and is legally protected as Schedule I species under the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act 1972. Crocodile Conservation Park, Kotmi-Sonar, Chhattisgarh was created in 2006 to support the large breeding population of mugger crocodiles. The choice of survey method depends on management objectives i.e. conservation, harvesting and control of crocodile population. Thus knowing the abundance and density of crocodile population in this monotypic habitat
