Whats the difference between a crocidile and an alligator?
- satsLv 72 years agoFavorite Answer
Snout shape: Alligators have wider, U-shaped snouts, while crocodile front ends are more pointed and V-shaped.
Alligators live in the south, Florida and Louisiana; the southern parts of Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi; coastal South and North Carolina; East Texas, the southeast corner of Oklahoma, and the southern tip of Arkansas. American crocodiles in the United States coexist with the American alligator, and are primarily found south of the latitude of Miami, in Everglades National Park, Florida Bay, Biscayne Bay, and the Florida Keys. A sizable population occurs near Homestead, Florida,

Two different species. Alligators are fresh water only, have a shorter, rounded snout (think 'fat' vs narrow). Crocs are narrow snouted, have higher bumps on their tail and back, and many types of them can live in salt water.

One will see you in awhile, one will see you later.

The main difference that holds up for all species is that, when a crocodile's mouth is closed, you can see it's 4th tooth. You can't see it in an alligator.
