DREAMING OF KILLING A CROCODILE
Even though killing a crocodile can be a nightmare, it should be considered a pretty good dream symbol. Having this dream means that repressed feelings are released and at the same time it is possible to overcome the hitherto unloved characteristics and fears embodied by the crocodile. Killing in the dream world is often very positive.
If the dreamer can overpower the crocodile in a dream and calm it down, then this should also be evaluated positively, because figuratively the dreamer manages to face his fears and overcome them. In this case, it indicates a huge inner strength, which the dream may not yet be fully aware of.
Because the crocodile also symbolizes an instinctuality, a fight with a crocodile can also represent the problem of keeping one's instincts in check. If the dreamer comes out of the fight losing, it may indicate a state in which he has lost control of his instincts and feelings.
Being eaten by a crocodile can be interpreted as the fact that the dreaming person is eaten away in the true sense of the word by his negative feelings.

From a spiritual perspective, the "crocodile" dream symbol represents freedom from the limitations of the world. He also symbolizes voracity and hypocrisy and is considered one of the initial chaos monsters.
In a crocodile dream, an alligator may also appear. If you perceive the armored lizard in the dream world as an alligator, this is primarily a warning against everyday enemies. The business environment in particular should be looked at more closely after such a dream.
