The crocs' base is located in the heart of the dense swamps of Chima. The hideout is surrounded by security turrets guarded by crocodiles, as seen in "Laval in Exile." The crocodiles' main base of operations can be accessed by a tunnel shaped like a crocodile's head. The inside of the mouth functions as a dock, rising up above the water level and allowing animals to enter. There is also a lever that closes the jaws of the croc head like a gate. Laval throws Chip at the lever to prevent the guards from perusing him.
