There are structural and physiological differences between the two types of crocodilians. The alligator has a much more specific habitat, being the Yangtze river in China and …the swamps of the southeastern US. Only in the state of Florida will the two have nearby habitats. Lacking a functional salt gland, alligators cannot live in salt water. The easiest way to distinguish them is that in a crocodile, both lower and upper teeth are visible when the mouth is closed. In the alligator, the upper jaw covers the lower jaw. The shape of the head is also different : the crocodile has a V-shaped snout, which is very long and narrow in front, while the alligator's snout is more U-shaped. The crocodile's coloration is olive brown, while the alligator's color appears to be darker, nearly black. The length of these two reptiles are also different. The adult alligator's length is up to 14 feet (4.3 meters), while crocodiles can grow up to 19 feet (5.8 meters) or more. In terms of nesting, the crocodile lays their eggs in mud or sand nests or near brackish water, while the alligator lays their eggs in mounds of vegetation surrounding freshwater. In the US, crocodiles are only found in the southern tip of Florida, though they can also be found in the Caribbean, Central America and South America. Alligators are found in the southeastern United States, and South Florida is the only known place in the world where crocodiles and alligators cohabit the same areas. (see the related links for more information about the difference between an alligator and a crocodile)
They are very ferocious and they could very well eat you alive. Alligators are less likely to do so, although they would probably hurt you. Overall, crocodiles are much more d…angerous.
3 species- the most common is the mugger crocodile (Crocodylus palustris), but the saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) is also found (only in Bhitarkanika National Park a…nd the Sundarbans) and the Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus).
Salt water and fresh water
A crocodile is a reptile.
they mostly live in moist areas crocodiles are found in swamps , rivers ,lakes etc.....these are freshwater crocodiles...saltwater crocodiles also exist...they live on the sea… coast...
There are 15 species of crocodile, all of them endangered, found in tropical parts of Africa, Asia, Australia, and Central America. The largest is the saltwater (indopacific) …crocodileCrocodylus porosus, which can grow to 7 m/23 ft or more, and is found in eastern India, Australia, and the western Pacific, in both freshwater and saltwater habitats. The Nile crocodile C. niloticus is found in Africa and reaches 6 m/20 ft. The American crocodile C. acutus, about 4.6 m/15 ft long, is found from southern Florida to Ecuador. The gavial, or gharial, Gavialis gangeticus is sometimes placed in a family of its own. It is an Indian species that grows to 6.5 m/21 ft or more, and has a very long narrow snout specialized for capturing and eating fish. The Cuban crocodile C. rhombifer has a short snout, grows up to 3.5 m/11.5 ft, and lives in freshwater swamps in Cuba. Morelet's crocodile C. moreletti is found in Central America, where it is overhunted, and grows up to 3.5 m/11.5 ft. Johnston's crocodile C. johnstoni is an Australian crocodile that feeds mainly on fish and reaches up to 3 m/9.75 ft in length. The Siamese crocodile C. siamensis is found in the wild in Cambodia and Laos. These populations consist of only a few hundred crocodile, making the Siamese one of the most endangered crocodile species. The Philippine crocodile C. mindorensis is found in the Philippine Islands and grows to just under 3 m/9.75 ft. C. palustris is an Indian crocodile resembling the Nile crocodile but smaller, reaching up to 4 m/13 ft. The Orinoco crocodile C. intermedius grows up to 6 m/19.5 ft. Tomistoma schlegelli is found in rivers in India and Indochina and grows up to 4 m/13 ft. The African slender-snouted crocodile C. cataphractusgrows up to 4 m/13 ft and is found in western and central Africa. Osteolaemus tetraspis, the dwarf crocodile, reaches only 2 m/6.6 ft in length and is found in the tropical forests of west and central Africa. The New Guinea crocodile C. novaguineae reaches 7 m/23 ft in length. There are 12 species of 'true' crocodiles which come under the genus Crocodylus, which are the Nile, the Saltwater, the Freshwater, the Cuban, the Philippine, the New Guinea, the Siamese, the American, the Orinoco, the Slender Snouted, the Mugger and the Morelet's Crocodiles. There are two others to which there are some dispute, which are the West African Dwarf Crocodile and the False Gharial. There are also two 'true' Alligators (American and Chinese), the Indian Gharial and 6 species of Caiman, which include the Black, the Common (also known as the Spectacled), the Broad snouted, the Yacare, the Cuvier's Dwarf and the Schneider's Dwarf Caiman totalling 23 species in all. In the world their are 23 crocodiles but in Australia their are 2 the Estuarine crocodile and the Johnsons crocodile which both live in salt and fresh water. There are 23 types of crocodilians. Of these, two are alligators, six are caimans (South American alligator relatives), fourteen are crocodiles and one is a gharial (a thin-snouted fish-eater from India). There is 13 different types (species) of crocodiles. Their are 23 different species of crocodile. I think you mean how many crocodilian species there are so... There are 14 species of crocodiles and here they are: American crocodile African slender-snouted crocodile Orinoco crocodile Australian freshwater crocodile Philippine crocodile Morelet's crocodile Nile crocodile New Guinea crocodile Marsh crocodile Australian saltwater crocodile Cuban crocodile Siamese crocodile African dwarf crocodile Tomistoma There are 2 species of alligators and species of caimans: Chinese alligator American alligator Yacare caiman Spectacled caiman Broad-snouted caiman Black caiman Dwarf caiman

crocodiles are scaly and stuff with sharp teeth for biting things and eating food because they eat meat turtles have a shell but not two and only one penguins look rubbery and… cant fly because their wings are smallish.
There are 23 different crocodilian species out there but there are 220 dwarf crocodiles left in this world. There are 200 saltwater crocodiles left, but there are a total of 7… different types of crocodiles. the Indo-pasific or the Saltwater, the Swamp, The Nile, The Cuban, The Morelet, The Ornoco, and The American. So There are 8 different types of crocodiles in the world.

Lacoste logo has an alligator with open jaws while Crocodile logo has a crocodile with closed jaws. ( I hope this is the answer u r looking 4.)
There are 23 species of crocodilian in the world. This includes alligators and caimans
There are seven types of crocodiles (based in my research) namely Indo-Pacific or the salt water crocodile, swamp crocodile, Nile crocodile of Africa, Cuban crocodile, Morelet…'s crocodile, Ornoco crocodile and the American crocodile.
crocodiles and turtles are both from the genera reptila, but there is a wide difference between them. turtle have flippers,crocs dont. turtles have a protective shell around …them,whereas crocodiles have a covering of scales. turtle has a beak, whereas crocodiles have teeth...etc...etc...
A crocodile can eat a frog. The main difference is that crocodiles are reptiles and frogs are amphibians. Crocodiles have lungs from the time they hatch, but frogs first …breathe using gills and a spiracle (when they're tadpoles) and develop lungs as they grow.
there are two types of crocodiles in Australia, all of which inhabit the northern waters. The Estuarine Crocodile or Saltwater Crocodile found in Australia is the largest kn…own crocodile in the world. It is commonly nicknamed the "Saltie". There is also the Freshwater Crocodile, or Johnstone's Crocodile, which is found in inland waterways in the tropical and sub-tropical north.
