Do alligators and crocodiles eat people?

   If an alligator is frightened, it will sometimes attack people, but it is not really a man-eater. American crocodiles usually leave people alone. The crocodiles that live in Africa and Asia eat anything they can catch, and they are very dangerous to man.
   Sometimes these big-mouthed creatures get eaten themselves. A naturalist once found a huge snake that had swallowed a five-foot alligator!
