Our Buayo was inspired by the poorly known, highly endangered Siamese Crocodile C. siamensis. These freshwater crocodile are native to Indonesia (Borneo and possibly Java), Brunei, East Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.
They are critically endangered and already extirpated from many regions. The historic range of the Siamese crocodile included most of Southeast Asia. Siamese crocodiles occur in a wide range of freshwater habitats, including slow-moving rivers and streams, lakes, seasonal oxbow lakes, marshes and swamplands. Adults feed mainly on fish and snakes, but also eat amphibians and small mammals.
Siamese crocodiles are under threat from human disturbance and habitat occupation, which is forcing remaining populations to the edges of their former range.
Extinct from 99% of its original range, the Siamese crocodile is considered one of the least studied and most critically endangered crocodilians in the world. Although few wild populations remain, more than 700,000 Siamese Crocodiles are held on commercial crocodile farms in Southeast Asia.
