Hello. Since you've accepted that this is an American crocodile (it is, as Tyler has noted below), why not go ahead and complete your spotting by filling in the scientific name from the species ID suggestion? Thanks

This is not an American alligator, its some sort of crocodile. If you spotted this in the everglades, its an American crocodile.
