1. Alligators
One of two species of crocodilian reptiles, distinguished from other caymans by a long snout, and teeth which can be seen when the mouth is closed. While the popular name (from the Spanish "lagarto", for lizard) is often applied to all American crocodilians, only Alligator mississippiensis, and its Chinese counterpart, are true alligators.
