They are quite cute, when they are babies. 

A video from Gatorland, Orlando, USA, shows how cuddly they can get. 

The baby croc, basking in the sun, waits for its caretaker to rub its chin. Its teeth are yet to form and it is vulnerable to predators.

The caretaker playfully tells the baby croc to watch out for birds, which may do nasty things with it. 

Give it a few more months, the croc will get its teeth and learn to use its jaws to rip and tear anything that gets close by – especially fleshy fingers.
