I'm just curious as to whether crocodiles and if you require specifics, saltwater crocodiles, could eat bread as infants. I was watching Lake Placid and I was curious as to whether infant saltwater crocodiles could even digest bread.

From a quick search it seems that amylase production in reptiles is highly variable and is generally a function of the eating habits. According to that logic crocodiles shouldnt produce amylase. Therefore I shall guess that crocs cant digest bread –  WYSIWYG Apr 22 '13 at 18:33
