The Pelago Crocodile (known as the Paoul Crocodile in the European release) is a legendary creature in Endless Ocean: Blue World.
"This rare native of Paoul is known to the natives as 'gatama gatawa'. It was thought to have been hunted to extinction for its leather at the beginning of the 20th century, but you have rediscovered it!
It is a very strong swimmer, even compared to other saltwater crocodiles, and may be capable of swimming up to ten thousand kilometres.
It is ferocious, even preying on water buffalo. Like other crocodiles, it will eat humans if it is hungry enough.
[The Diamond Necklace]
In the Paoul language, 'gatama gatawa' means 'mother's diamond necklace'.
Long, long ago there was an island where the most beautiful woman was envied by her daughter, who was the second most beautiful. The daughter believed her mother's diamond necklace made her more beautiful, so she stole it.The gods turned the daughter into an ugly crocodile as punishment.
This crocodile is said to have a belly full of diamonds it has swallowed, and so this ugly creature has a beautiful name."
The Pelago Crocodile can be seen on land in southeastern Gatama Atoll, but only after a certain quest has been fulfilled.
How to find it
First, the player must purchase a telescope from Nancy, then look into it on the morning of/after a full moon. The player will make note of a huge object floating in the water. When the player goes to investigate the strange mass, they will find nothing in the water, but once they go ashore at coordinates G-8, they will find this massive crocodile.
This creature stays stationary on land and prefers being fed to any other form of interaction. It will hiss at the player if they pet it, but they can unlock its triva by feeding it.
- It is likely that the Pelago Crocodile is based off of the Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), due to their similarities in their large size, head shape, and colour. The Saltwater Crocodile was also once hunted for its skin, but it is no longer considered threatened.
