The Baritine Croc is a beast/gator-type enemy in the game Final Fantasy XII. Smaller versions are found in the Garamsythe Waterway and normal sized ones are found in Paramina Rift. They are tough enemies in the Garamsythe Waterway, but the party can take care of them by the time they reach the Paramina Rift.
Page 1: ObservationsEdit
Should the traveler hear a hauntingly sweet song in the wetlands, beware! For it is surely the dulcet lure of the baritine croc, a crafty and dangerous beast favoring cold climes and dank underground caverns. The thick layer of vermilion fur covering much of its bulk is of great density, and containing of air pockets which further insulate the beast against the elements, making it better suited to living in harsh environs than its gator brethren.

Have you slain the sweet-singing baritine croc? Then look into its belly for the lost treasures of those who hunted this wily beast and fell. You may claim a broken sword or the like. Do with your findings what you will, but we recommend turning a profit. Whatever it meant to those who came before, to you it's a treasure with which to line your pockets. Then again, you could use it to arm and armor yourself, adventurer. Who knows, it may be your broken sword that is found next.
The Baritine Croc spawns in lower section of the No. 11 Channel that requires the Sluice Gate Key. Watch out for Sap and Fusillade traps and occasional Water Elementals. It respawns if player moves two screens away (head to Overflow Cloaca and return to No. 11 and it will be back).
Based on the Baritine Croc's musical abilities as described in the bestiary, Baritine probably alludes to Baritone, a level of singing voice.
