“Visitors venturing onto Crocodile Isle receive a warm reception from the bubbling lava of Crocodile Cauldron. The key to these levels is to avoid getting burned in the ever-present red-hot lava. Fortunately, there are many different ways to keep your feet cool: crocodile heads provide safe stepping stones in one area, and hot-air balloons will give you a ride in another.”
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest instruction booklet, page 20

Crocodile Cauldron is the name of the volcanic area of Crocodile Isle in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest ruled by Kleever. Crocodile Cauldron is, as mentioned above, very volcanic, possessing several large pits and rivers of lava. It appears to be encased in a giant Kremling skull or a statue of a Kremling skull, which has steam coming from its nostrils and glowing red eyes. Several mine shafts are located here also. The Kremling Krew had been mining for precious gems and minerals for weapons before being interrupted by the Kongs. There are remains of several ships lodged in the volcano, possibly meaning that the area may have not always been volcanic. Water also seems to flow into the area, or there is at least a large deposit of it underground, as the remains of a ship are flooded with it; the water constantly fluctuates between being boiling hot or extremely cool. At the end of Donkey Kong Country 2, Crocodile Cauldron, along with the rest of Crocodile Isle, ends up sinking to the bottom of the ocean.
