  Did you know....

that all alligators are crocodiles, but not all crocodiles are alligators?

Both alligators and crocodiles are members of the reptilian order Crocodylia – of which there are 23 species of crocodilians.  Within the order, however, are two main families:  Alligatoridae and Crocodylidae.

Some of the differences between alligators and crocodiles were explained to me during my recent trip to Florida:

- You cannot see an alligator’s teeth when its mouth is closed, while the teeth of a crocodile are always visible.

- Alligators have wide, U-shaped snouts, while crocodiles have tapered, V-shaped snouts.

- Alligators prefer freshwater, while crocodiles like brackish or salt water.

- Alligators are found in the south eastern United States and some parts of China while crocodiles can be found all over the world.

- Alligators are not as aggressive as crocodiles.

- Alligators like to make their nests and lay their eggs in areas covered by vegetation -  Crocodiles make their nests in sand or muddy banks.

Don't be fooled - although they seem to be lazy and warming in the sun, crocodilians can swim up to 20 miles per hour (32 km) and run on land at a speed of 11 mph (17.6 km).

Remarkable
Reptiles !

In the Book "The lectures of Linnaeus concerning the Animal Kingdom", published about 100 years ago, Carl Linnaeus wrote in the beginning of his Chapter on Amphibia that animals in this Chapter are "the ugliest, most cruel and most poisoning".  He expressed that he was happy that our Creator put rather few of these animals into this class.  If there had been more, they would have hurt the other species.

Carl Linnaeus (1701-1778) was a Swedish botanist, physician and zoologist.  He is known as the father of taxonomy and the one who laid the foundations for our current biological naming scheme.
