*Crocodylus novaeguineae* means “Crocodile of New Guinea”. Within its native range this species is known under several different names, such as Puk Puk, Wahne huala, Buaya air tawar, and New Guinea freshwater crocodile.

The New Guinea crocodile is found in freshwater marshes, swamps and lakes, chiefly in the interior part of New Guinea. During the dry season it can enter the river systems if its normal habitat becomes too dry. The New Guinea crocodile tolerates saltwater but tends to avoid brackish coastal regions and has never been seen sharing habitat with the Saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus).

This a*w*e*s*o*m*e, vintage coin (1975) has a soft gray patina and some beauty marks ~ naturally acquired with age and travel. Its size is slightly larger than a US half-dollar.

The stone beads are natural turquoise, hematite, red jasper, onyx and carnelian. The metal elements are a mix of base metals (brass, copper, etc). All salvaged finds! Recycling at its best!

The pendant drop is almost 3 inches in length. The chain is 24 inches in length.
