Crocodile Dream Interpretation and Meaning

Share

The meaning of the dream crocodile depends on what action the crocodile is taking in your dream and/or how you are interacting with the crocodile.

If you see a crocodile that is simply “laying around” with nothing to do, this represents a warning that someone is trying to have a negative impact on your income or your overall happiness. If a crocodile chases you, it symbolizes major success. However, if the crocodile catches you after a chase and bites you, you can expect to be disappointed in love and business affairs. If the crocodile that appears in your dream is dead, this means extreme success beyond anything you can imagine.

In some cultures, the dream crocodile always means deception by your closest friends and that enemies will confront you every way you turn. If you dream that you step on the back of a crocodile, it symbolizes some kind of trouble in the near future and that you may have trouble getting out of it. If this is your dream, be careful about taking anyone into your confidence.

Crocodiles in dreams are associated with feeling judged, attempts at being more discerning, a need to evaluate someone or something, taking a stand against someone or something, or a representation of your own character flaws. The crocodile is also an ancient symbol of the deep unconscious mind, aggressiveness, or assertiveness.

Dream crocodiles may also warn you against someone who is giving you bad advice or leading you into making bad decisions. The quick interpretation of a crocodile involves a warning of hidden danger.

Because crocodiles are amphibious creatures, a crocodile dream suggests that you may be trying to have a place in two different worlds; it can also indicate flexibility. For some cultures, the crocodile is a symbol of patience. It may indicate the ability to cause pain to someone without any feelings of regret.

The positive symbolism associated with a dream crocodile involves your ability to take advantage of lucky breaks when they happen. On the negative side, the crocodile represents hidden dangers in what seems to be a harmless situation.

  • Hey, this helps a lot, but I just had this nightmare that bothered me quite a bit and I wonder if you could help me decipher it.
    There were crocodiles everywhere. At first I am at a swamp hunting them, and all the crocodiles are almost school buses long with large green eggs on their backs. I rip the eggs off the back of a dying one laying about, and it bleeds and tries to get away and I feel horrible. Then there is more hunting. It is a contest to see who can get the most eggs. I discard the contest and decide I want a crocodile foot, a lady is selling one that is too expensive (21k) so I cut off one by myself; and then discard the foot but keep a nail from it.

    Then, I am on a second floor, about to jump to the ground below, but there is a gap of murky water (I am still in a swamp) and a person on the other side is telling me to jump. I almost do, but as I get ready to leap a crocodile jumps out at me and just misses my face (he bites my hair instead). He jumps out at me about three times total.

    In another part of the dream, I meet a crocodile that is wildly feared, he is the size of a large house and is very aggressive. However I am kind to him, and when he eventually escapes from his cage, he does not harm me. We fall in love, and it often cuts to scenes of us kissing and him outside devouring other crocodiles.

    Something happens and crocodiles are taking over, it is night, and they are massacring everyone. We must keep the porch lights out so they don't see us. My baby sister goes outside, much to my protesting, and jumps into the water, becoming a crocodile and swimming away to try and fix the problem. I wrap myself in copper, and try to appear into a mansion that is the source of the problem, but fail.

    It is daylight now and my crocodile lover returns along with my sister and all is well again. My boyfriend comes over and I realize I am cheating on him with the crocodile. We are all in a car together going to a grocery store, and I see a prostitute on the corner and desire her.

    The dream ends somewhere there. Any thoughts?

  • I dreamed people diving into a dam and been eaten by crocodiles. 5here are no signs to warn them. I was staying in a hotel with different glass lifts and also nurses on duty. People returns from the see with shells and small see fish and unknown see animals. I took the nurse to show them the dangers of 5he crock in the dam. My grand child kept on standing to close. I lost it and spank her with a wooden spoon. When I look down I saw the crocodile lying in the water.

  • I can't find my crocodile dream yet , but it was in the area I last lived with parents and can't remember who but someone had it as a pet it was big but a strange apple green colour with dark bits down it's spine, even though it was sweet, I was still a little wary and no my guard, but I was hoping for positive as I swear I was given a few people's bad luck 😔

  • I dreamt about being in my parents house with my mum, dad and 3 children, we were in the living room and outside the window was a huge crocodile/alligator.. it was hissing and growling.. and in my neibours garden.. I opened the window to get a better look and to tease it by barking like a dog at it , to see what it would do. It crawled over the fence and into my parents garden.. still hissing and growling.. I shouted at it to try to scare it off.. and it came towards the window, I ask my dad if he thinks it could get through the window? .. he replied "yes" .. so I go to shut the window, I'm too late though and the alligator/croc has it's nose on the window and opens it ... I don't feel scared.. and I hit it on the nose ... then I woke up
