An alligator is basically a crocodile that needs orthodontics. That and the fact that “alligator” comes two letters before “crocodile” in the dictionary are the main differences between the two.
The American alligator is the largest reptile in North America. An adult can reach up to 18 feet in length. Once on the endangered species list, the American alligator now numbers in the millions and lives all across the southeastern United States. Most of them vote by absentee ballot, even in presidential elections.
Alligators make horrible pilots. They are unable to maintain constant airspeed or constant altitude and their instrument crosscheck is atrocious. Also, when they don’t actually eat the ground crew, they are quite rude to them.
A is for alligator, high in the sky.
