There is also an American crocodile. It is more rare than the common alligator. They hold their bodies further from the ground and can make a very quick run even on a very muddy surface. Many pets and a few children have been taken by them.
We visited Florida when my daughter was almost 3. I was very cautious, expecially around brackish water, where these crocs live.
Brace yourself while corporate america tries to sell us its things. Some day they will chill and use tiny ads.
