False Gharial at the Artis Royal Zoo (also known as Natura Artis Magistra), Amsterdam (Holland)

The False Gharial, also known as Malayan Gharial, Sunda Gharial, and Tomistoma, is a freshwater crocodilian native to Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo, Sumatra, and Java. Unlike the Gharial, the False Gharial's snout broadens considerably towards the base and so is more similar to those of true crocodiles than the Gharial, whose osteology indicates a distinct lineage from all other living crocodilians.
