A crocodile personifies deceit and danger. Thus dreams of crocodiles do not generally have positive interpretations. As per Indian thought, seeing a crocodile in your dreams is not a good omen. It warns you that enemies are on the lookout to harm you and advises you to beware and be cautious.
What does a crocodile represent spiritually? The crocodile totem represents fierceness, authority, and the power of the water element. As described in the section on the Crocodile Power Animal below, the crocodile totem is emblematic of confidence, protection, and sovereignty over your domain.
Crocodiles are spirit animals with aggressive and short-tempered attitudes. They often symbolize worry, threat, danger, and concern. Dreaming of crocodiles can mean adventurous, scary, exciting, and uncertain events in the dreamer’s life. The presence of a crocodile in a dream symbolizes self-understanding and wisdom.
Whenever you dream of a crocodile or an alligator in the water, it denotes overwhelming feelings, uncontrolled worries, irrelevant fear etc. As alligators and crocodiles mean danger and threat, seeing these fierce creatures inside water means repressed insecurities, hidden fears that are showing up in dreams.
What is the spiritual meaning of dreaming of alligators? An alligator’s appearance in your dreams can be a sign that you are capable of manifesting and that your ideas are powerful. Alligators and other reptiles appear in the dreams of those who are creative, thinkers, and innovators.
Alligator symbolism and meanings include ancient wisdom, primal instincts, good fortune, and other dynamic traits.
Crocodiles are strong personalities who can swim against the tide and often do so. Any restrictions society tries to impose on them are alien to them. Their dual nature is connected to their ability to live both on land and in water. They often live on the edge between two worlds.
Being attacked by alligators could indicate that there’s a situation or person dragging you down in your life. Think about what’s going on in your day-to-day. If a person is inserting negativity or holding you back from being your true self, then they may be the alligator that’s attacking you.
The most obvious way to discern the two reptiles is to stare down their sinister snouts. Alligators have U-shaped faces that are wide and short, while crocodiles have slender almost V-shaped muzzles. And if you’re daring enough, take a gander at their chompers.
Dreams about being attacked often relate to feelings of your own vulnerability. While they may be disturbing to experience, attack dreams are often exploring sources of pain or control in order to be released from it. Attack dreams can often represent the way we symbolically attack ourselves.
Reptiles and snakes in a dream relate to instincts and sensations that are somewhat unconscious and self regulating. The reptilian portion of the brain is the oldest and is associated with autonomic reactions, sex and survival mechanisms.

As if crocodiles and alligators weren’t terrifying enough, scientists have discovered that these ancient, sharp-toothed beasts are incredibly cunning. So clever that they use lures to trap and gobble unsuspecting birds.
Recent studies have found that crocodiles and their relatives are highly intelligent animals capable of sophisticated behavior such as advanced parental care, complex communication and use of tools for hunting. New research shows just how sophisticated their hunting techniques can be.
Crocodiles win the fight because they’re bigger, stronger, and more aggressive than alligators. Although the chances of them meeting are not great due to population differences and ranges, a match between these two heavyweights could happen in southern Florida.
Crocodiles can not mate with alligators. The quick answer is no. Despite having a similar appearance, they are genetically too different, and although related, they long ago diverged into different genera. Alligators and crocodiles belong to different subspecies (Alligatoridae and Crocodylidae).
Crocodiles are often regarded as much more aggressive than alligators. While you should avoid contact with both animals at all costs, alligators in the Everglades tend to be more docile than crocodiles, only attacking if hungry or provoked.
If you dream of being threatened or attacked by an animal, some part of your emotions or behavior (usually anger or sexual feelings) may have erupted or surfaced in way that felt like it ‘came out of the woods. ’ You do not ‘own’ the energy and so it threatens you.
Spiritual Meaning of being Chased in a Dream
You are running away from someone or something in real life. A person or situation is being very problematic to you. It’s stressing you out and taking all of your energy. Thus, you choose to run away from this person or situation to save yourself.
Dreaming about running and hiding may reflect your desire to re-evaluate your life. Maybe things are changing too fast in your life. Perhaps, you’ve been burdened with too much stress and new responsibilities. You’d like to take a step back and re-evaluate everything.

The sacred spirit of Reptiles has an aggressive independence. People who work with Reptile energy often find themselves retreating into the inner realms of self or extending to their Higher Self rather than fussing over current situations.
According to professional dream analyst and author Lauri Quinn Loewenberg, snakes — a common dream archetype — typically represent a person in the dreamer’s life who exhibits low, dirty, toxic, or poisonous behavior. However, they can also represent something related to health or healing.
In dreams, snakes can be primal, sexual creatures, but also oppressors. They can, in venomous snakes, represent death by stealth. They can, however, also mean rebirth through the shedding of one’s skin or relate to health and spiritual problems. And according to Freud, they may even represent the phallus.
Predators of Crocodiles include humans, large felines, and birds of prey.
