Human Hunted Alligators

The both reptiles are ancient ,dangerous, strong and have powerful jaws .As we know both are ancient animals scientists claim that this species came to the earth about millions years ago and remains exist in the world .The another common difference between this reptiles are their teethes arrangement .The teeth’s of the Crocodiles are mesh with each other on the other hand you can only see the upper teeth of the Alligators. Because of the structure of teeth’s both are very good hunters but now they are hunted by the human illegally for their skin.
