  • 10. Distinguishing Alligators from Crocodiles
    • You can tell the difference between a crocodile and an alligator by looking at their noses:
      • Alligators have a wide, U-shaped snout, whereas
      • Crocs have longer, more V-shaped noses.
    • Also, the large fourth tooth in the lower jaw of an alligator fits into a socket in the upper jaw and is not visible when the mouth is closed. This does not happen in crocodiles.
