Hello Robert!

You can see the difference when looking at the teeth (when the mouth is shut):
if you can see the lower teeth sticking out over the upper yaw, it's a
crocodile (i.e., a member of the Crocodylidae familiy); if the lower teeth are
all inside, it's a gator (i.e., a member of the Alligatoridae family).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crocodilia has some nice pictures where you can
see the difference.


Regards,
Gerrit
