Did you know that CROCODILES have the STRONGEST BITE of any animal in the world? But the muscles that open the jaws are very weak. It would be easy for an adult to hold a crocodile’s jaws shut.
An easy way to spot the difference between a crocodile and an alligator is the fourth tooth of a crocodile sticks out when its mouth is closed. Another easy trick is that crocodiles generally live in salt water and alligators tend to live in fresh water. Although crocodiles can be found throughout the world, alligators are only found in the US. The exception is the Chinese alligator that only lives in the Yangtze River and is sadly, critically endangered.
