Dream Meaning - Alligators, Crocodiles and Caiman

What does my dream mean?

This is my dream meaning blog where I describe a dream, interpret the elements of the dream and finally come up with a dream meaning. Here is my dream interpretation blog, where I explore dream meanings.

In today's dream our dreamer dreams that she sees an alligator but her companions tell her that it is a Caiman.

Alligators, crocodiles and caimans symbolise danger, these predators are sneaky and ready to attack. You have to be alert to people close to you who may be ready to attack or deceive you. These reptiles are interchangeable in meaning, you are more likely to dream about the reptile that you are most familiar with. They are all members of the same family, the caiman is smaller and has sharper teeth, both the alligator and caiman have wider heads than crocodiles. This probably doesn't make much difference in a dream interpretation, you are in danger of being savaged by a mean beast!

To dream of alligators attacking others is a sign that you may escape the worst of a problem in your environment but may feel either lucky or guilty for having escaped.

To dream about hiding from an alligator is a sign that you are aware of the dangers around you and are taking steps to protect yourself.

To dream of attacking an alligator is a sign that you are tackling a problem head on,  great strength will be needed for you to succeed. The result of the attack will give you a clue as to how successful you will be in solving the problem. 

In today's dream our dreamer is criticised for not knowing the difference between an alligator and a caiman. This is a sign that the people around her are apt to criticise. Our dreamer is looking at the big picture a crocodilian is about to attack and she wants to be ready. The dreamers companions are more concerned with small details like the length of the tail of the attacker. Our dreamer needs to be ready for danger and/or deceit and not allow those around her to distract her from making decisions to protect herself.

Dream Interpretations

I started interpreting dreams when I was a teenager. I always had very detailed dreams and would recount them to my friends. One of my boyfriends bought me a dream dictionary and I started to delve into interpretation. Unfortunately, I found that many dreams had elements that were contradictory and so I did not really get a detailed analysis of my dream.

I realised that different people have different relationships with dream symbols based on experience, their daily lives and culture. A person who keeps snakes will have a different interpretation of a snake dream to a person who has a fear of snakes.

Dreams may have symbols that are said to be good omens and then some that are bad omens, understanding the context of the omens will help you to interpret their true meaning for you.

My blog is a series of dreams and interpretations of the elements in each dream to help you to understand how best to interpret your dreams, I am also available to interpret a dream for you. Email me:, dream interpretations are free!

I organise the dreams by general subject area rather than alphabetically, if you have a question about a dream symbol please email me.

Tarot Readings!

I started reading tarot cards many years ago when I was in college, I was studying business but my real interest has always been in psychology, astrology, tarot and dreams. I waited a long time to pursue tarot reading professionally. I do not understand how tarot cards work or why they work. I do not believe that you need special powers to read the cards but experience and an understanding of the symbols on each card opens the doors to a successful interpretation.

It is a good idea to be in a quiet place to have a tarot reading, to be able to free your mind of distractions and concentrate on an issue that you would like some insight into. Tarot cards can give you insight into situations and things that are happening around the questioner.

I have been a tarot reader for more than 40 years and will be happy to do a reading for you, the cost is $30 for 30 minutes or $50 per hour.  In UK: £20 for 30 minutes or £35 for 60 minutes. I use PayPal for payment and Skype to complete the reading. Please email me to set this up with your preferred time see below.. Readings are for entertainment only!

 In US Time: I am available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 2pm, 3pm, 4pm or 5 pm Eastern Standard Time and Saturday 9 am, 10 am and 11 am EST. 

In UK time: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 7 pm, 8 pm and 9 pm. Saturday 2 pm, 3pm and 4 pm.
