The first time an alligator showed up in a dream for me was when I was working in an environment where one person was making all the decisions which effected hundreds of people.
That person’s behaviour seemed like an alligator to me.
They would be quiet there under the surface and then “snap”! when you least expect it. Their announcement would be really good for them and their business but not so good for me and many others.
The negatives of alligators are that they are secretive and sneaky and they spring out to attack suddenly.
But the positive about being a like an alligator is that when you know the positive things you want you can really jump up and go for it without hesitation.
