We had no idea how to tell them apart so we had to ask Uncle Titian. Uncle Titian took us on a little field trip back to the swamp. He pointed out that alligators have darker skin and a rounder nose and crocodiles have a triangular nose and lighter skin.
He was quick to point out, that both crocodiles and alligators liked to eat little monkeys and suggested that we stay away from them. I told him that I doubt we'll go often because I don't like the swamp anyway because the ground is too muddy and it smells funny there.
