Would a wallet made of Caiman not also qualify?

If a crocodile and an alligator were of equal weight, which would win in a fight?

The one with the longest reach. I'm sure of it.

I'm pretty sure they cannot mate.

Everglades tour boat guides approach the 'gators, but steer clear of the crocs. Is this behavior driven by rational assessment of risk or reptilian reaction to perceived danger?

Crocogator with interior crocogator or calf? Apple juice or apple juice cocktail - calf lining less expensive.

Friction-glazed bombe (plumped) finish circular tile (flank) Porosus (Nile/Australian crocodile) may be considered more European - Hermie-ish.

Polished gloss finished, flat, rectangular tile (tummy) Mississippiensis (American Alligator) may be traditionally more masculine and somewhat retro.

This is from Bergdorfs, it was about 500. Pretty good quality, and they have it in 6 or 7 colors.

I got a card case (which I use as a wallet with cash seperate) from Charles Underwood.

It is quite well made (nice suede lining) and was quite reasonable. They also do full wallets (and GREAT desk blotters!)

I splurged on one of these from April in Paris. Bea's 'gator is like butter, the most luxurious I've ever encountered. (Mine is in the color of the one standing on end.)

No, they can mate and produce offspring. It has happened at at least one reptile park or farm. Interesting because they are separated by some 80 million years of evolution. Although croc-like reptiles go way back into the Triassic, the true modern-type crocodiles and alligatorines, which include the caims) date "only" from about 80 million years ago.

As to which would win in a fight, most likely the crocodile. They tend to have more aggressive temperaments than gators, at least the larger species.

Of the 23 (I think) species of crocs and gators, two--the Salt Water Crocodile and the Nile Crocodile--are highly dangerous man-eaters. Five other species are occasionally or potentially dangerous--American Alligator, American Crocodile, Orinoco Crocodile, Black Caiman and Indian Mugger. The remaining species are not particularly dangerous to adult humans.

Thank you, Jan. This now gives me hope for Sator/Manton rapprochement...maybe even Mafoofan/Kabbaz handholding.

Yes: I am a dreamer.

They would probably know better than I would. However, to the best of my knowledge, only one man has ever been killed by an American Crocodile in the USA. As best I recall the particulars, it occurred in 1931, a man shot a large specimen, thought it was dead and went over and kicked it. The croc was not dead, spun about and bit the guy through the midsection, which proved fatal.
