Crocodiles win the fight because they are bigger, stronger and more aggressive than alligators. The first thing we need to do is determine the size of each animal. Alligators and crocodiles are the same size, so we’ll use that as our starting point. We’ll also assume that both animals are equal in size.
For the purposes of this article, we’re going to use the average body weight of an adult male Alligator in the U.S. of 100 pounds (45 kilograms) and an average adult female Crocodylus porosus (a.k.a., “alligator snapping turtle”) weighing in at a little more than a pound (0.5 kilograms).
We’re also assuming that the two animals have a similar body length (about 6 feet (1.2 meters)) and that they have similar head and tail lengths (approximately 6 inches (15.4 centimeters) long).

Do alligators have balls?
The male reptiles, like all other vertebrates, have paired gonads that produce sperm and testosterone. Reptiles carry their testicles or testes internally, often in close proximity to the reproductive organs. The female then lays her eggs, which are fertilized by the male’s sperm, and the eggs hatch into tadpoles. After a few days, the young hatch and begin to feed on their mother’s milk.
Can an alligator love a human?
crocodiles don’t experience that emotion. Love is an emotion only found in species that form pair bonds and care for their young. Crocodilians care for their offspring only in a very limited fashion and will eat them once that is no longer possible, and they are not capable of experiencing love. This is not to that crocodiles are incapable of feeling love, of course.
Can crocodiles be friendly?
In rare cases, individual crocodilians have been known to bond so strongly with people that they become playmates for years. A man who saved a crocodile that had been shot in the head became friends with the reptile. The crocodile’s death 20 years later caused them to stop playing.
Can u outrun a crocodile?
How quickly can they run? crocodiles can achieve speeds of 12 to 14 kph for a short period of time, which is slower than a fit human can run. If you’re fit, you can run faster than a crocodile.
Crocodiles are also known to be very good swimmers, able to swim up to 30 metres in a single breath. They can also dive to depths of over 1,000 metres, making them one of the best divers in the world.
Can alligators smell period blood?
It is recommended that all menstruating women wear a diaper in addition to a full wetsuit to help cover the scent of their menstruations. Like bears, gators can smell the menstruation, which will put your entire party at risk of being eaten by a gator. Gators are also known to be very territorial.
The best way to avoid this situation is to keep your distance from the animal as much as possible. Gators will not hesitate to attack you if they feel threatened, so be sure to stay as far away from them as you can.
Can alligators change sexes?
Unlike humans, crocodiles and alligators don’t have sex chromosomes. Depending on the nest temperature, an embryo can become a male or a female. In less than a century, the mean low temperature in Palo Verde has risen by 2.5C.
“This is the first time that we’ve been able to show that temperature is a major determinant of sex determination in reptiles,” said study co-author Dr. Richard Wrangham, a professor of integrative biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
