Alligators Vs. Crocodiles
September 27, 2007 10:12am CST
I thought it would be fun to see how much everyone knows about alligators and crocodiles. Everyone: name one difference you know exsists between these 2 identical animals. *Sorry I find this amusing X.X I might just be a nerd* lol. Here's my fact: Crocodiles are much more aggressive than alligators are :) Next! =P

Australia has less dangerous crocodiles that are relatively small. They are called fresh water crocodiles. It also has salt water crocodiles that can be found in water even 100km inland! They can grow very big and long. They can be a danger to people and dogs in rivers in North Queensland and the Northern Territory. Alligators live in Florida in swampy areas like the Everglades National Park Crocodiles live in the tropical areas in Australia like Daintree River in Queensland and Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory.

There are many different types of crocodilians in the world. The freshwater crocodile doesnt get very large, maybe 4 to 6 foot ;long where as the Nile crocodile can get to be over 20 foot long and might only eat once or twice a year. Then there are the cayman and garvails (not sure of the spelling of it)_ that are neither alligator or crocodile.

Ok, sorry, I don't want to nitpick, but if they were identical animals, wouldn't they be exactly the same? I think the difference is that the crocs, especially the saltwater ones, are a lot bigger, and as you say, a lot more agressive. Cranky would maybe be the word for them!
