All alligators are crocodilians, but not all crocodilians are alligators!

The order Crocodilia includes the true crocodiles (family Crocodylidae), the alligators and caimans (family Alligatoridae), and the gharial and false gharial (family Gavialidae). They first appeared 95 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period (Cenomanian stage) and are the closest living relatives of birds, as the two groups are the only known survivors of the Archosauria.

Want to learn more? Join us for the September meeting of the NHSM Herp Club, and see an alligator and crocodile live and in-person. Can’t make it to the museum? Tune in online. Due to the unique nature of the program, spaces are limited. In addition, to help cover the presentation, we are asking for a donation.
