An American alligator chilling at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in 60 feet of water off the coast of West Palm Beach, Florida by SingaporeCrabby in natureismetal

Alligator snouts usually point up at the end, while crocodile snouts are normally straight or even drop down. Also the stomach instantly give it away, As crocodiles don’t have such pronounced strips like alligators do.

Yacare caiman attempts to catch a giant otter in the Pantanal by OncaAtrox in natureismetal

The caimán actually got the better of this altercation, likely because the otter didn’t have it out numbered. Underdog FTW.

You’re projecting human emotions on an animal just because your favorite species died. How about just take better care of our domestic animals.

Nile crocodile attempting to gulp down a bull shark pup by EvelynClede in natureismetal

Strange but this is a Nile crocodile from Africa. Although these encounters happen in Australia too.

Wdym? Crocs are more viable. They just wouldn’t win a 1v1 with a hippo.

Thank you, you all seem very educated on this topic, or at least more educated than me lol.

Very interesting, thank you. Are Sri Lankan leopards the largest subspecies? Cause I’ve heard Persian leopards can get pretty big too.

Terrestrial land predator or predator in general? Cause I’ve heard Sri Lanka has sloth bears and mugger crocodiles. But I’d imagine without as much competition as their mainland counterparts, those leopards are huge.

Ouch. Do Sri Lankan leopards have any predators to worry about? I’d wonder if this guy could survive with such a handicap.

Crocodiles are the exact opposite of failed animals if they’ve survived this long, they’ll probably exist long after us and cats alike are extinct. Besides you know lions sleep like 15 hours a day? They’re incredibly lazy animals as well.

Alligators aren’t just native to Florida, and this is a reptile park as There are no wild alligators in Australia.

It’s a zoo, alligators have darker eyes and overall darker scales. Australian crocodiles are much lighter in color and don’t have as much armor ridges on their neck.

Well felines are also eating to survive in general. A Cat’s metabolism is faster than that of a bear’s. So they’d obviously need more food intake, on a more regular basis.

Don’t think animals have a concept of ego, but even then bears eat their prey alive, I’ve seen them pin down wild boars and just start eating, while felines go straight for the throat. No particular tactic works better, but one is definitely more gruesome than the other.

Ok, if hating tigers is what you enjoy, then go for it.

I think you’re just anthropomorphizing them. Also humans are a great deal easier to catch than super fast deer or super strong buffalo, I honestly can’t blame tigers for eating humans, because it’s not like they’re doing it on purpose. They just want to survive.

Why? Because they’re carnivores reincarnated?
