The population of alligators is estimated to over one million. The Chinese Alligator is considered as an endangered species and live only in the Yangtze River Valley. Young alligators eat snails, fish, crustaceans and insects. When they grow bigger they catch larger prey. When the alligators are bigger they eat sometimes other reptiles, turtles, birds and various mammals. The adult alligators take as prey deer, razorbacks and even sometimes smaller alligators. But alligators are also dangerous because they can also kill human. The Saltwater Crocodile is often compared to the Alligators as they are also very big crocodiles and are found in the Alligators Rivers found in the region of  Arnhem Land.
