NOt sure whether Hitler had a 'gator, but this is a croc. YOu can tell the difference (and it is important) this way - the croc's snout is more narrow and its teeth show when the mouth is closed. Gators have wider snouts (jaws) and hidden teeth (when mouth is closed). Why important? Gators will avoid humans if possible but crocs are notoriously aggressive. Florida golfers are thankful.
