Alligators are black to dark grey in color while crocodiles are a green-grey color.
Are crocodiles and alligators aggressive?
Both crocodiles and alligators are wild animals whose behavior can be unpredictable. Generally, crocodiles tend to have a flight or fight response. They encounter humans less frequently than alligators but have been known to be a bit more aggressive when provoked.
How large do alligators and crocodiles get?
An alligator's maximum size average is around 12 feet, which is common in older alligators, but not many are found of this size in the park. Most large gators we will see in the park are between 7 to 10 feet. Crocodiles grow a bit larger than
alligators, maximum size around 13 feet.
