Crocodile is having a moment of rest

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.

These real-life beasts might be scary to look at but have no fear we've found their funny sides. Join us on a journey through some alligator puns, and funny crocodile one-liners that all ages will enjoy.

We've found some short and snappy funny lines the kids can use next time they have friends over, and some longer puns for all the budding comedians out there.

If you manage to work through all this list and your kids are up for some more fun, just type jokes, puns, or riddles into the Kidadl search box and see what comes up. Choose from hilarious chicken puns or maybe some dinosaur jokes, the animals may be extinct, but their comedic value isn't!
