A hazard is an object or other Interactive Element which will cause Croc damage if touched or otherwise and are not considered an Enemy.
Orange in colour, Lava is found on Forest and Desert Island.
Also known as Icy Water, this type of water is too cold for Croc to touch, let alone swim in. It is found only on Ice Island.
Mud Pits are brown in colour and are found on Desert Island, although it is unknown why they would cause Croc any damage.
Acid Pools (also known as Poison Pools) are only found in circular pits on the Desert Island.
Cliff edges are found on all islands and will cause Croc to lose a life regardless of how many crystals he has.
An orange fireball which often comes up from a Lava Pit. Iceballs have the same affect which come up from Freezing Water. Some may also jump from Pits onto the ground and jump back into the Pit at the other end. Some may also juggle platforms to keep them above Pits for a short time. Enemies such as Devil Dantinis, Scorpions, and Firepoppers can also shoot Fireballs and Iceballs. These hazards seem to be the only hazards on Forest Island and Ice Island.
These only appear on Desert Island and will occasionally spin around an area, attempting to whisk Croc into a Mud Pit or Poison Pool.
Also referred to as Sand Streams, these will pour off a ledge and attempt to push Croc into a Poison Pool. They only appear in the Bonus Area in Leap of Faith.
A Swinging Mace is purple in colour and spiky, but seems to swing from thin air and will swing from side to side, causing damage to Croc if he touches it. They are only found in levels on the Castle Island, with the exception of an area in Leap of Faith.
