A crocodile/alligator doesn't strike me as very likely. I believe that salt water croc's mostly find their home on the other side of the world, and
I've never heard of a salt water species of alligator.
Also, the shape of a croc/alli's head is pretty distinctive. If it had popped out of the water and hissed at them, I'm pretty sure they would have
been able to correctly identify it.
It seems like pretty odd behavior too. It was threatening them, and from the description seems like it could have killed them if it had wanted. If it
was defending a nest, part of thinks that might have have attacked right out.
Perhaps it was a juvenille and was just playing with her as it would one of its siblings. That would be my best guess anyway.
Conjecture aside, this is a very exciting story! I doubt anything will come of it, but its really interesting to see new sea creatures appear to this
many people at once. Wish I could have been there!
