Alligator Spirit Meaning, Symbols, and Totem
By All

Alligator/Crocodile Spirit Symbols:

wisdom, survival, subtly, instinct, primal energy, patience, determination


These powerful predators and power animals slumber in the shade and wait patiently in the shallows, they hold within them a wisdom borne through millennia. This totem teaches those who observe its strength and symbols: patience, perception, subtlety, meditative restoration, and ferocity.

This spirit animal is an ancient keeper of knowledge, and a gentle mother who breathes both life and death into the world.


This totem often slumbers in a meditative trance for days, weeks, or even months at a time, consider the wisdom inherent in deep meditation and introspection. Also, consider how spiritually intact you are, these powerful spirit animals can go months, even up to a year, without a meal! This communicates a wholeness of spirit and body that is very important.

When a Crocodile or Alligator shows up look for an opportunity connect with a deeper part of yourself, to remember the instinctual energy and primal force from which we are all born. Also, as these totems are keepers of knowledge and wisdom, remain open to new thoughts, insights, and ideas.

Alligator/Crocodile People:

People with these powerful spirit animals as their totems are often assertive, calm, and confident. This confidence however does not translate into brazen displays, unnecessary force, or boastfulness. Instead, it is more of a quiet reservation, a subtle and patient energy that communicates strength and knowing.

These power animals are often feared and with good reason, they are the hardest biters on the planet. But when unprovoked, these reptiles are usually indifferent to human presence even at a close distance, and even when provoked this spirit often remains calm.

It is important for people with these totems to remain active, do not stagnate or laze about too long after satisfying experiences. Do take your time to ruminate and consider the implications of your thoughts and actions and extract wisdom from both success and failures. Even in you’re feeling good, don’t ignore that juicy opportunity just waiting for you a short swim away.
