Dreams about crocodiles can be very scary, but their meaning doesn’t have to be negative. The interpretation depends on the context in which the dream took place.
Dreaming about a crocodile
If you see a crocodile in a dream, that is a warning that your friend is not honest with you.
They might find out something that concerns you but won’t tell you since they know that the information will hurt you.
They know that you will resent them for it sooner or later but want to spare you the uncomfortable situation that the finding carries with them as long as they can.
Running away from a crocodile
Dreaming of running away from a crocodile means that you will put yourself in danger.
You will do everything for justice, so nothing scares you when it comes to fighting for the truth and its revelation.
Even though having such an attitude will bring you a peaceful consciousness, you will often be the target of people whose opinions and attitudes differ from yours, which is why they will do anything to scare you and make you give up on meddling in the things that don’t concern you.
To see others running away from a crocodile

You will realize that the people that didn’t let the media brainwash them but still think within their own heads and are not afraid of possible consequences still exist.

You take many things personally, so you retreat inward instead of clearly stating what bothers you.
You will try to get over traumas that have been bothering you and be more open with people from your surroundings.
If someone else kills a crocodile
This dream means that you will get involved in an illegal business.
You might accept an offer that guarantees better earnings but carries great risk as well.
You will ask yourself if you are capable of doing something like that, but when you realize that you desperately need the money, you will not be in a dilemma and accept the offer.
However, you need to be careful since you don’t have experience with such things, so you could end up in trouble if something goes wrong.
Meaning of a dead crocodile
A dead crocodile is a sign that you should question the decisions that you have recently made.

You might find a better solution to the problem you have.
Hunting crocodiles in a dream
Hunting crocodiles in a dream symbolizes an adventure.

To see others hunting crocodiles

It will probably seem to you that the criticism has brought some changes, but their future actions will prove otherwise.
Dreaming of a crocodile biting you
When you are dreaming of a crocodile biting or eating you, that symbolizes danger.
You have probably invested a lot of effort into something that will not bring you success.
You have wasted your time, money, and nerves, so you will ask yourself whether you should give up on it or stick it out until the end.
Remember, if you decide on the latter, the consequences could be fatal.
Seeing a crocodile biting someone else
If you see a crocodile biting other people in your dream, it means that your loved one will ask you for a piece of advice regarding one delicate topic.
Considering that you have never been in their situation, you will have to think about what to say well.
You shouldn’t be afraid that your words will lead them on the wrong path since everyone makes decisions according to their consciousness and takes responsibility for their actions.

To receive a crocodile as a gift
If you dream about someone giving you a crocodile as a gift, it means that someone from your surroundings behaves strangely around you, so you never know whether you have a good relationship or not.
They act like your best friend sometimes, but most of the time, they push you away.
They might be afraid of opening up to someone since some experiences from the past bother them, or they simply don’t like you but don’t know how to say it.
Bestowing a crocodile in a dream
Dreaming about bestowing a crocodile on someone is a sign that you should change your behavior when it comes to people that you love.
Stop taking them for granted if you want them to be in your life forever.
You can’t expect other people to constantly give while they are not getting anything in return.
Dreaming of stealing a crocodile
Stealing a crocodile in a dream means that your subconsciousness is telling you not to do stupid things because of a loved one.
The fact that you are trying to prove yourself is romantic and cute, but don’t overdo it.
There are simpler and safer ways to prove your love to them.
To dream about someone stealing your crocodile
When someone steals a crocodile from you in a dream, it means that you will lose something that has never been yours.
We are probably talking about a partner for whom you have believed that they see your relationship as something that will last forever.
However, it turns out that you were just a quick stop for them.
You might think about where you have made a mistake for a long time or what you should have done to stop them from leaving, but if you analyze the time that you have spent together a bit better, you will realize that they have never actually been yours.
The symbolism of a small crocodile
A dream in which you see a small crocodile that just hatched from an egg symbolizes your need to protect someone.
We might be talking about your kid, friend, or family member that is vulnerable at the moment and needs your love, support, and attention.
You will make sure that they know that you are there for them.
Interpretation of a big crocodile
Huge crocodiles in a dream carry bad news, unfortunately.
They usually suggest that you will deal with problems that are bothering you at the moment for a long time.
You have a hard time dealing with the situation that you have caused.
However, the fact that you have admitted your mistakes and finally stopped blaming other people for them is a good sign.
Now is the time for the most difficult part, which is investing a lot of effort, energy, and patience into solving them.
Dream about crocodiles in the zoo
The previous interpretations talk about crocodiles that you see in nature or their natural habitat in water or land.
However, if you see a crocodile locked in a cage in the zoo, it means that you will have a conflict with a person of the opposite sex.
That can be your partner, one of the family members, a colleague from work, or even your superior.
On the one hand, you will want to prove that you are right, but on the other, you will be completely aware of the fact that you are making a mistake.
Vanity will not let you admit your mistakes, so the conflict could last for a long time.
The meanings of dreams can be more trivial. If you have recently seen a crocodile in person or on TV, that has made a strong impression on you.
