Dream meaning: Crocodile

Crocodiles in your dream can represent danger or aggresiveness. If the crocodiles are concealed beneath the water they might also symbolize hidden animal instincts. Some psychologists say that crocodiles can represent the “devouring” aspect of one’s mother.

    I had a dream that am fighting with my friend and on our way to the police she was eaten by crocodiles and died.

    I’ve been having nightmares on and off this year, thought I had gotten rid of them. I dreamed of crocodiles last night, there were lots of them, whole streets of them. I hear there’s a piece of literature interestingly called The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz.

    I don’t remember much anymore… just that they were menacing and snapping and running through the city extremely fast. They were walking around the marble floors of buildings standing at the foot of stairs with their mouths open, and they might have chewed on me, or maybe it was someone else they ripped up. I think they were communicating back and forth with each other to organize their attacks, I’ve seen crocodiles in dreams, ever since I was child, they’re rare, but they’re an important symbol I see sometimes. Usually they’re coming into a domestic environment, walking around your home, laying on your carpet, hiding under the Christmas tree, they always pop out on you… I don’t think its positive. They’re always in motion, and they’re never near water, sometimes they slither more like snakes which I have also dreamed of.

    In my dream I saw i was with my sister, and her daughter was with me. We were near her house in a flood and we were sitting on some stones. I was talking about my daughter and I saw crocodile coming towards us. I got scared and asked what is this? My niece says, it’s a crocodile auntie do not worry it will not harm you. The crocodile came and stood in front of us and then I saw crocodile swimming away quietly and he went and stood far from us. Opening his eyes to see us and again closed his eyes and quietly went away. I want to know what this dream means.

    I dreamt that my boyfriend was giving me a crocodile and he had his hand over his mouth trying to keep it closed with both of his hands , and while I was taking the crocodile from him we were also struggling since I was supposed to grab his mouth instead so that he wouldn’t open his jaws. What does it mean?

  • Katherine // Feb 10, 2014 at 2:18 am

    I had a dream that it was me and my little brother around some water or should I say lake but with board walks..Now my brother tries to jump on a funny looking rock which happens to be a alligator..As he jumps on it he falls in the water then the alligator opens it mouth..Now as I’m running to save him I noticed its swarming with alligators..I seen huge giant ones and normal ones…so I’m running and I tell my brother hurry..So as I see him swimming for his life he finally gets on the board walk and im there helping him out of the water as fast as possible and I start hugging him ..But as I also noticed the board walks where separated you had to jump to each one..but as I’m running a guy or fisherman a really nice one sees me running and comes dashing behind me…

  • Sarina // Feb 11, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    I had a dream that I was camping with my family and my two brothers whom one isn’t alive anymore were camping around the river bend from us.. I look in the river and there was a massive croc swimming in their direction. And by the time we got there it had already grabbed my brother, who in real life has passed away and bitten two of his fingers off! A few days later my other brother and other people decide to go back to find the alligator who is hurting people and it attacted him as well and bit one of his fingers off… What does this mean?

  • Mellissa // Dec 22, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    I dreamt of a whole bunch of little green lizards which I think may have been geckos and they were all just kinda circling each other but I was looking down at them and one had something stuck in its mouth and when I looked closer a little crocodile, which was just a little bigger than the lizard, came out of the lizard! That’s all I can really remember. Can you help me please to get an idea of what this might mean?

  • Rajni // Dec 15, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    I saw a dream last night that I was in car on a bridge and suddenly car lost the control and we fell into the river. Then I saw that some how I swam and came to a piece of land and saved myself. There was another person with me but don’t know who. We tried getting in the water to cross and come to the mainland but there were numerous crocodiles that were trying to attack us. But we were not entering river and suddenly I woke up.

  • Fatemeh // Dec 3, 2012 at 8:31 am

    I had what appeared to be a crocodile as a pet in the house and he was getting bug, but I was not attacked or bitten. What does this mean?

  • Nosheen // Apr 25, 2012 at 12:49 am

    I dreamt that I was swimming across some murky water to get to my place of residence with some keys in my hand. And there are several people around and in the water. As I dive in and making my way in the water, I see several crocodiles… Mostly asleep and having no intention of harming me. I make my way out successfully but nitice i had lost the keys and see my boyfriend sitting around to whom I say ” U know there were all these crocodiles in the water I just swam across?” he says ” Just enjoy ur life!
    I lie around the area and the next thing I know, someone comes by to give me a pedicure while I am laying on the sand.

    I had a really weird dream. It included kittens, baby elephants dolphins and crocodiles.

    So in my dream me and my family were on a long road trip and we stopped for rest beside a green bridge. Under it was some water resource. I think it was a river. There were a bunch of people looking down at it and me and my cousin went to look too. I saw a mother elephant carrying a baby elephant and walking towards the river. And the baby jumped out of the moms reach onto the water and started playing in the water. All the audience went aww.. But then in the water I noticed a kitten and it didn’t know how to swim so the elephant goes out to save him. The kitten was so scared and while it was holding the elephant it clawed his ears and the elephant showed a painful reaction but it brought the kitten back to the shore. While it was doing so from under the water came an alligator and was trying to bite off the baby elephant. But a dolphin came to its rescue but it didn’t last too long coz the alligator bit off one of its fins and it bled and died. All the people who were watching this became silent and sad. And a baby boy who kinda looked like Mugly came in a boat and put the dolphin in his boat and took off. He looked realllyyy sad. Then the alligator came again and took the baby elephant whole in its mouth and closed it jaws and went off swimming in the other direction. None of the people knew how to rescue the baby elephant.

    My dream happened inside a brightly lit home dat was not mine. The only things I remember were two alligators or two crocodiles - one slightly larger than the other. Both were coming at me until for some reason the larger one turned on the other and bit its right hand I believe completely off and that was all I could remember.

  • nirupa // Jan 31, 2011 at 2:53 am

    I had a dream that we have a pet alligator. My husband went to feed it, and the alligator swallowed my husband. After that my husband comes back alive.

  • ian // Jan 11, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    I had a dream about my girlfriend freeing a baby crocodile inside my room. I was so angry and I was trying to find the crocodile anywhere my house but I couldn’t find it and it made me angrier and more upset. My relatives were in that dream and were telling me that the crocodile can survive just feeding on rats.

  • nhina // Jan 10, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    I dreamed of a crocodile under the stairs and I was afraid he may hurt me. I hurriedly ran to reach the top of the stairs to escape.

    In my second dream the setting was the same, but there was a room. Still the crocodile is under the stairs.. I felt like I was alone.. I entered the room and the crocodile moved and was trying to enter the room, but I was forcing the door to close because I was afraid.

    It seemed that the crocodile cared for me but, I was afraid maybe he would bite me.

    I had a dream that I was in a foreign country. It looked like a place in a European country. From a terrace, I was looking at a lake full of crocodiles and people swimming and playing together. There was no tension at all in the place except for me.

  • DOniaSenAI // Oct 21, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    I dreamt that I and a band of strangers in the town I was in had to team up to escape an apocalyptic reign of giant moles. They were all sorts of people including a mother and child. We stocked up on weapons in a hardware store leaving promise notes to repay for what we had taken. Our vehicle was damaged so we shored up into a bowling alley. The survivors in the alley were partying it up like spring break. I met a woman who stuck out to me because she admitted to always falling for the wrong guy. She met a man n the club who’s friends said he was a jerk and disappeared with him. When I asked why, she said he was cute. Then a tall man who was a valuable ally, decided to check on the vehicle. I went outside to help him and I saw that he was in the form of a crocodile. I told him, “Hurry up and change back and don’t let me see. It’s gross.” But then I peaked and watched his reptilian body return to human form. I knew it was the only chance I’d have to see a shapeshifter in action.

  • Alexa // Oct 8, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    I had a dream that I was in a jungle and I was dragged into a clearing by these two gorillas that had me by my arms and there was one on a stone throne with a crown on his head and two guards on either side of him. He pointed behind me and made a growling sound and the two gorillas that had me by the arms took me over to a cage and threw me into the cage. It had a bunch of huge crocodiles in it. I jumped up out of the muddy water and backed up against the cage bars as they started coming toward me. I then realized that the cage was made of bones. Then suddenly the gorillas opened the cage and threw a man into the cage. The crocodiles stopped coming at me and went after the man. I turned my head to the side and squeezed my eyes shut. I hear bones crunching and feel blood splatter on my face. I wake up before anything else happens.

  • Ken // Sep 10, 2010 at 3:24 am

    I’m in my own bed and two white crocs are coming towards me until I am cornered. I can then vividly see myself confronting one of them by placing my hand under the front of it’s closed mouth and pushing upwards. I then wake up out of the dream.

  • March // Jul 6, 2010 at 4:02 am

    I had a dream of my house being invaded by an alligator. I was not hurt as I locked myself in a room but my husband was in the bath. I shouted out to him that there’s an alligator in the house and warned him to remain in the bathroom. But he opened the door and rushed out and the alligator went for him. Fortunately, he managed to evade the alligator by inches and ran into my room. However, his arm was bleeding.

    I just woke up a few minutes ago and I hurriedly checked on my dream about a crocodile silently walking along a muddy place. What I just couldn’t understand now is, this “muddy place” where I saw this creature walking was also the same place where I saw people sleeping. I wasn’t sure though, if it was at the beach but I could still remember that I even borrowed a big black pair of slippers which I saw in the middle of the water.

  • Surah // Jun 15, 2010 at 5:39 am

    I have a recurring dream that always, ALWAYS involves my best friend and I ending up, either stranded somewhere, or swimming back to shore and then being stranded with the same humongous crocodile. Doesn’t matter where we were, we end up on a beach with deep yellow sand, murky water, gentle breezes, surrounded by smaller (even baby) Crocodiles who all seem dead set on attacking my best friend. Every time I’ve had this dream, I’ve always turned toward the sea and the massive croc was sitting there watching us, and because I looked (or something) he suddenly gets up and comes towards us. It’s never me he focuses on though, all the crocs are trying to get my Best friend and I’m always the first one to see it coming. So what does it mean when the Crocs aren’t actually chasing me, but rather, my best friend and I have to save him?

  • whatthe // May 3, 2010 at 7:49 am

    I had a dream that I am running across our street being chased by an crocodile/alligator. Then when it was close to me, I woke up…

  • TNT // Feb 22, 2010 at 2:21 pm

    I’ve had recurrent dreams where I am treading water in this swamp that seems to take up the whole world. There is no ground, just swampwater and jutting cypress trees that shield the sky from view. I’m all alone. It zooms in on my swimming body, then it’s like a camera that submerges beneath the water, and all of a sudden you can see my legs. Right beneath me are thousands and thousands of prehistoric-looking crocodiles or alligators. They don’t chase me, don’t even seem interested in me, they’re just there beneath me, swirling all around my feet. I wasn’t even aware they were there. When I woke up I was kind of freaked out. I always dream of crocodiles or alligators but I never get eaten by them or hurt, sometimes chased, but never really threatened. Anyways I have no idea what it means, it just seems weird to me that this is the only animal I dream of and it’s all the time.

  • Yadira // Oct 28, 2009 at 12:25 am

    I have a 15 mo baby girl who is my only child. My daughter and I were in a car in the middle of nowhere, or I just didn’t recognize the place. I don’t recall rain, but I do remember everything wet, damp, and drk. We crashed in a pond! I immediately rolled the windows down to allow the water to come in versus the windows getting busted then water rushing in. I crawled in the back, got my dghter out of her car-seat, swam up as fast as I could. When we get out I attend to my dghter fearing the worst. She did swallow a lot of water but she was OK. As I pick up my baby, crying hysterically I take a look at the water and it is the nastiest water I’ve ever seen. Dark & dirty…almost looked like swimming in feces. Then, I see something lurking in the water. A crocodile jumps up out of the water and just in the nick of time I grabbed my daughter and ran. I do not remember the ending.

    As I was dreaming all this, my sister-in-law said she heard me crying in my sleep! I’ve never heard of such a thing. Can anyone tell me what this means?

  • Mayra // May 9, 2009 at 8:06 pm

    When I was little I would have dreams about a crocodile eating my back and I could feel it but it wasn’t painful. It just felt strange and I would have to lift my back.

  • kittyneko // Apr 26, 2009 at 1:24 pm

    My friend and I were at the zoo. (I actually don’t know who are those people I called friend, it is so weird, that happens all the time. I dream of being with someone I don’t know and call them friend family etc…) Well, we are in this huge beautiful zoo when we pass the crocodile section. We are walking on a wooden floor below which are these 4 or 5 huge huge crocodiles. When we are walking I notice that the fence and the floor beside the fence are brittle and I can see that it will collapse if someone steps on it. Then my friend went to the fence so I shouted stop and don’t go. She almost fell but I saved her. The crocodile also jump trying to reach my friend and eat her.(weird, crocodile cant ump) I told everyone about the floor but it seems like they don’t care. So I try to go to the other place, but everywhere I go there’s always this huge crocodile and the scary brittle wooden floor and fence…seems like crocodile wont stop till he/she can eat all of us. However they don’t attack other people and the crowd seems to know about that dangerous path but no one does anything to fix it. OK thats all - my cat woke me up hehehe…I hate dreams where I always need to save someone its scary…

  • weird dreamer // Jan 16, 2009 at 9:14 am

    I had a dream about me and my cousin being late to school. And like our aunt drove us. Then we ended up seeing my other aunt and she drove us. Then we ended up at a zoo . And then we went down into the water and started cracking up bout how ghetto it is becuz they didn’t have a real crocodile because we saw a plastic one. Then I went up becuz it got lame? Then went my cousin was about to come up. The crocodile was attacking her a big one a real one. Then she & the crocodile wrestle. When she finishes wrestling it she smiles. Then when she was coming up but there was a green ghost lady (like the ring).

  • vany // Nov 5, 2008 at 4:55 am

    i dream of a scene where i was watching a lady lying down by the beach shore and suddenly a huge crocodile appeared and ate the lady. What does it mean.

    There’s also a scene in my dream that i have i my shower then suddenly the huge crocodile(same crocodile on the first scene) came out but firtunately i ran fast and the crocodile didn’t get at me.

    I survived the attack of it unlike the the unfortunately lady on the first scene. What does it mean?

  • rukhsana // Oct 20, 2008 at 8:35 pm
