It is massive in length and covered in thick, rough scales that run from the end of its tail to the tip of its maw. Mottled green in color with yellowish fangs, the beast is supported by six squat legs with webbed feet, each of which ends in short, black claws.
Crocolisks are powerful amphibious predators common in most regions of Azeroth, attacking unwary adventurers sailing their waterways. They exist naturally in both fresh and saltwater environments, preferring to remain close to land. However, seafarers occasionally report sighting giant crocolisks out in the ocean, miles from dry land. Crocolisks spend most of their time submerged, but are equally at home on land and often climb onto shore to sun themselves or to roll in warm mud.
They are proficient swimmers, able to surge forward with bursts of speed that often catch prey by surprise. They prefer to feed on relatively defenseless prey, such as small, aquatic creatures or larger land creatures that flounder when crossing bodies of water. However, crocolisks never hesitate to defend their territory aggressively from trespassers. A crocolisk usually lies in wait, submerged near the edge of a body of water with only its eyes and nostrils showing. When it spots prey, it charges to the attack. It lacerates the victim until it bleeds to death, then drags the corpse back to its watery home. Crocolisks become stealthy while they are in the water. Further, a crocolisk can lie in the water with only its eyes and nostrils showing, and can hide as long as it remains motionless. ( ) ( )
Crocolisks are usually found near bodies of water such as rivers, marshes and lakes. They appear to be related to the primitive diemetradons.

As a hunter pet
- Not very popular as a hunter pet. Crocolisks are known to make a hissing noise when they sit still, much to the annoyance of some hunters.
Due to the existence of animals like alligators and crocodiles within World of Warcraft, it may be that the crocolisk received its name due to its shockingly similar features shared by basilisks and crocodiles alike. It could also be speculated that perhaps the two species are able to interbreed to create this beast.
