If we could pick one fierce animal for the “King of the Swamp” title, it would be the almighty crocodile. Have you seen one? They have the strongest teeth, and they’re fast! Let’s not forget that they’re stealthy.
But on merchs, they’re cute and adorable. Are you looking for children’s crocodile-print boots for the rainy days? Here’s our top picks.
Note that for every pick, we’ve included some cool facts about these reptiles. While helping your child put their rain boots, you can give them some trivia about crocodiles.
Crocodile Rain Boots for Kids (With Handles)
First trivia: Did you know that crocodiles have 24 sharp teeth, but interestingly, they don’t chew their food? Perhaps these razor-sharp teeth – combined with their powerful jaw – are meant to kill their prey so that it’d be easier to devour them?

Not all crocodiles are created equal when it comes to size. The smallest of them is called the Dwarf Crocodile, which can reach up to 5 feet. If you ask us, this is still large. But compared to the largest species (Crocodylus porosus) that lives in saltwater and can reach up to up 3 meters, the Dwarf crocs are indeed… cute.
Crocs Kids’ Handle It Rain Boot
Here’s another crocodile trivia: Did you know that crocodiles once lived among the dinosaurs? These mega-creatures are now extinct, but somehow, crocs have managed to outlive them. That means that these reptiles have been on Earth for more or less 240 million years.

Apparently, there’s some truth to the expression “cry crocodile tears.” Crocodiles do shed a tear when they devour their prey. These tears are the result of swallowing too much air and not because they feel sorry for their prey.
When you see a crocodile with their mouths wide open, this only means they’re trying to cool off. They do these because they sweat through their mouths. They don’t sweat through their skin like humans do. That’s because their skin is made osteoderms, or bony deposits that form their distinct appearance.
