Alligators have broader and shorter heads than crocodiles, and the toes of their hind feet are less completely webbed. Alligators belong chiefly to the New World, crocodiles to the Old World.
Along with the difference in the heads and feet. Alligators are also mainly freshwater and crocs are usually saltwater but I have seen both adapt.
In Florida we have both alligators and crocodiles. Here's how to tell them apart: The alligator has a broader snout, its nostrils are separated by its scaly skin, and it is gray or black.
The crocodile has a more narrow and pointy snout and needs dental work - its fourth tooth in the lower jaw protrudes when its mouth is closed. Its nostrils are close together and almost touch, and it is brown or green.
Those who attend the University of Floria are called Gators.
And some sandal-type shoes are called Crocs.
