Greenville Zoo Conservation Lecture Series: Tomistoma

November 13, 7 p.m. @ The Children's Museum of the Upstate

The Tomistoma is a large, slender-snouted crocodilian found in peat swamp forests and slow-moving rivers in Malaysia and Indonesia. The unusual crocodilian is threatened in the wild due to agricultural development, primarily related to the expansion of oil palm plantations. As Chairman of the Tomistoma Task Force within the IUCN-SSC Crocodile Specialist Group, Bruce Shwedick will present information about the natural history of the Tomistoma and highlight their conservation efforts.
