Presence of Crocodiles in Maine Lake:
Till now no presence of crocodiles has been noticed in Maine lake. The reason is that crocodiles are among those species that like to remain in warmer weather. But the weather at the Maine lake is quite cool and not suitable for them. In the winter season, the temperatures here go below zero.
