Crocodile is having a four-chambered heart due to the evolution and thus, it shows resemblance with aves only in this character. It shows all other characteristic features similar to reptiles, so it is placed in the class of reptiles.

crocoldile is a cold-bloded animal so it is placed among reptiles.

  •  crocodile is firstly poikilothermic ie it is cold blooded < making it easier to explain. Ask question if you need to know what poikilothermic means.>
  • it has scally body
  • it has many other features of a reptile

That is why it is placed under reptilia.

crocodile is having all the characterstic features that reptiles have, therefore if one feature does not match it may not be diqualified from reptilia , therefore crocodiles is also comes under reptilia !
