Crocodiles and alligators are giants of the reptile world, and it's easy to see why.
With armor-plated skin covered in spikes called scutes, and a fearsome jaw that can snap closed on its prey they are a force to be reckoned with, but there are some differences between the two. Although it can vary between sub-species the main differences are in size and appearance.
Male alligators, for example, can be up to 3.4 meters long, compared to 2.6 meters for a female. Male alligators could also reach half a ton in weight. Appearance-wise it's all in the snout. A crocodile snout is pointed and V-shaped, while an alligator snout is wider and u-shaped in appearance. Whichever snout is sniffing out some dinner, you can be sure it will be a meaty feast, as crocodiles and alligators both enjoy fish, birds, frogs, and some mammals that lurk near the water's edge.
