American alligator, Ramat Gan Safari, Israel
Alligators live only in freshwater, crocodiles can live in saltwater. When attacking the prey, the alligator does not really want to "mess around" with it for a long time. As a rule, he leaves prey, which fights for a long time. He does not like to attack anything that he cannot swallow right away. Even the largest and most powerful alligators often choose prey that is swallowed at a time.
