What colors are gators and crocs?

While I’d normally just “go green” with them, I decided to look it up:

“…an adult alligator’s skin is usually a darker grayish black color, but the skin of adult crocodiles is usually a lighter tan/brown color. This is usually due to the type of habitats crocodiles and alligators live in. Alligators tend to live in darker water (swamps) or slow moving rivers. Crocodiles tend to live in lighter colored waters…” —The Fact Site

So guess what? My crocodile and alligator are not green! The croc is on the outside since he’s speaking TO the gator, and vice versa. Hear my chatter about why we color them green in the video. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Any stamp set with a dad joke in it also wins my heart. “See you later, alligator!” and “In a while, crocodile!” was the call and response at my house growing up. I love that this set is laid out in a way we can have it inside and outside for that call and response!,

And the promised colors:
