Agree! Surely any creature should be kept in an environment as close to its native one as possible, so that it can exercise its natural behaviuoiur and instincts wherever possible. Doesn't matter if a minnow or a croc. they all deserve that care.

Agreed but tricky topic when you think of all animals/fish that people keep!!....parrots and other birds is a fine example or even an oscar or similar large cichlid, we feel were doing well keeping them in say 5x2x2 but in the wild there natural territories are a good few metres square!! The main reason any of these animals have larger territories is to find food and breeding partners,in captivity we provide that so....the question is are they "happy" with this....in my experience yes!
As regards to the croc though its holding pen and defo the pond should be a fair bit larger as i'm sure it would love a swim!!!

True but keeping that size gator in that size enclosure is like keeping a full grown oscar in a 2ft tank...........it would never be done.

Yup !! i dont condone this set up .... it should be bigger specially the pool as they spend 90% of their time in water and only really come out to sunbathe , should be 3 quarts water and 1 land!
