At first glance gators and crocs appear to be very similar. But if you take a closer look, you will find to that they are quite different. Alligators have wide snouts, while crocodiles have a narrower snout. You will notice that gator mouths show off their vicious top teeth; this is because gators have a wider set upper jaw. Crocs jaws are equally sized, therefore showing interlocking teeth.
Crocodiles and alligators will eat just about anything they can sink their teeth into, from fish to turtles, and even sometimes other gators/crocs. It should be noted that crocs are inherently more aggressive than alligators.
Both crocodiles and alligators possess a great deal of strength and speed, and even on land, these reptiles are able to pursue and overtake prey with relative ease. People who have not been trained to deal with these animals should not make direct contact.
