Hello. This is a crocodile. If you look on the lower jaw and count to the fourth tooth from the end of the snout, it stands up very prominently and exposed. That is a dead giveaway. To compare to a juvenile alligator, look here or here I don't know which species it is as it is a captive. Perhaps it is an American crocodile, Crocodylus acutus see here but I don't know. Cheers
