Totodile are extremely social for reptile Pokemon, they are known to live together many months after they hatch, stealing food from trainers, wrapping litter around boat propellers, and aggravating larger more dangerous Pokemon and leading them to cross paths with the unfortunate victims of their "pranks." Their vibrant colors and equally vibrant personalities make Totodile a handful to train. However after separating from their siblings and claiming a territory of their own, the increase in food supply and competition encourages growth and this adolescent phase causes physical development into Croconaw. Croconaw are extremely solitary and competitive and coupled with their ravenous appetite, are a force to be reckoned. They constantly hunt and never turn down a meal and their powerful jaws are lined with teeth that are constantly replaced when they break or fall out. When they reach adulthood their scales on their limbs have thickened, their forelimbs have doubled in length, and they have tripled in size. All this adds up to a bulky fighting machine, the fully mature Feraligatr.
Feraligatr was fun, I loved doing the scale work and design wise I wanted it to look like the same anatomy as the original anime character like the original concept creator arvalis. Be sure to check his other realistic pokemon: [link]
Cyndaquil and his evolution line are next and a special thanks to RTradke's original concepts of Seaking, Goldeen, Horsea, and Seadra and you can find more of Rtradke's work here:[link]
