Crocodile and alligator question

Do they ever make roaring or growling noises when attacking someone like the movies on Syfy have them doing?

No, when they attack they will "hiss", it's air passing through the gullet, the only time I hear a bellow or something along the lines of a growl, is when breeding season is in full effect. Syfy overdramatises to make things more exciting. Hope this helps.

Thank you kindly, and it does help. I like your signature about kissing a rattlesnake if you believe love conquers all. Yes it's true that the only creatures that can touch a rattlesnake without one biting or trying to bite is a rattlesnake of the opposite sex. Bull snakes are immune to their venom, but Rattlers of course don't know that, and that doesn't stop them from trying to defend themselves by biting. There are creatures that can prey on rattlesnakes, but they're​ too quick for the snakes to bite them.
God bless, Jason Scott Irelan

Bullsnakes are not immune to venom but Kingsnakes are.

Sorry out of topic, how about red-eyed crocodile skinks? I'm sorry if I really newbie about the crocodile species and different kind of breed. I am not very sure, sometimes because of the size, I think this species is a mix between lizard and crocodile. I read the facts that male and female sound differently, between distressed and attract each other for mating. Anyone here ever had the experience to keep it as a pet?

They are not a mix of lizard and crocodile. There is no such thing. They are skinks, plain and simple. They are called crocodile skinks because their skin superficially resembles that of a crocodile. They are not crocodilians in any way.

As far as their care goes, they are not hard to care for, but they are not a good "pet" because they do not appreciate handling. They should be considered more of a display species.

Here is a comprehensive care sheet written by my vet:
