Boa constrictors, Alligators or Croc’s

There is a resident alligator that cruises the Esnasdup-Green Island area.
We are not sure if he is an alligator or a crocodile however, we’ve decided which species is not of concern. We just don’t want to cross paths while snorkeling.
I have a condition called ulcerative gastroesophageal reflux disease and some nights, wake because I feel as though a boa constrictor is around my stomach, squeezing the life out of me.. which BTW could happen in these parts. One women in Esnasdup woke to find a boa constricter sleeping on top of her bimini! Similar to the character “Indiana Jones”, I’m deathly afraid of snakes and if I found a boa constricter aboard Lion’s Paw, forget the complications of gerd. I would instantly die of a heart attack!
