LAND CROCODILE [כֹּחַkoakh]. The term only occurs in Lev 11:30 in a list of unclean animals, namely small reptiles. Contact with the animal made a person or item unclean. Vessels were to be washed and remained unclean for the remainder of the day while clay vessels were to be broken (Lev 11:32–34).
