Fun Fact: The Cousin of Birds

Fun facts about alligators

While birds are often called the last descendants of dinosaurs, crocodiles and alligators can also be considered the children of dinosaurs. They are bird’s closest living relatives, as they both are the last remaining animals belonging to clade Archosaur. Unlike birds, crocodiles are considered living fossils as they have changed very little since they appeared in the Late Cretaceous period.
