Give reason :

Crocodile is having four-chambered heart but still it is a reptilia

EXPERT ANSWER

Dr Saman Ahmad , Meritnation Expert added an answer, on 26/2/13

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.

  •  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.
