The crocodile is larger than the alligator and has a longer, more narrow snout. It has a streamlined body and webbed feet, which make it an efficient swimmer.
All crocodilians, including alligators, have a pouch in their throats that can block water from entering their throats when they eat underwater. Some believe that the crocodile species dates back to the time of the dinosaur. We would have to agree with this since both the crocodile kind and the dinosaurs were created on Day 6 of the Creation Week. The crocodile has eyes that are placed on top of its head, which allows it to see above water while its body is submerged.
