Animals of North America
The American crocodile is the most widespread crocodilian in the Americas and is the only species of crocodile to share a habitat with any species of alligator.
American crocodile males can reach up to 20 feet (6.1 m) in length. These animals are at home both in marine and freshwater environments but prefer salt or brackish waters and lead solitary lives. They can be distinguished from alligators by having a long, narrow snout, light tan or brown color and by both rows of teeth showing when the mouth is closed.
