I agree with Rip. Crocodiles have that strong skin and a habitat advantage. And one successful bite and the gorilla will have lost.

So my vote goes to Crocodile.

Gorrilas are extremely tough, capable of taking massive punishment before falling.

Even with the surprise attack, the gorrila could just pound the croc's face and osok him.

That match depends almost entirely on the situation.
If the croc was out of the water, maybe, but once water is involved I'd vote croc.
Of course, Gorillas also work in sophisticated groups...

I'm going to say that the croc wins over all in this one.

In the previous battle the lion and the bear were relatively similar in all aspects, and the bear superior in all.. in this battle the animals are more different.

As it has been mentioned, it depends on the setting. Each animal is stronger than the other in their own habitate. The gorilla is a muscle pack, and it has a higher intellect than the crocodile. The crocodile has a deadly bite and is well armored with scales and osteoderms.

The disadvantage of the crocodile is its relative clumsiness on land compared to the gorilla. Smaller crocodiles can gallop to escape danger, but those hardly pose a threat to a grown gorilla. As it has been evidenced recently, crocodiles can be vulnerable on land:

The disadvantage of the gorillas is their weak skin. Thinking of it, that's pretty much their only disadvantage. They do have imposing canines:

My vote goes to crocodiles. They're just... tougher and stronger.

I think the fight would go down like this: Crocodile gets the gorrilla in a death bite, the gorrilla then starts pounding the crocodile in the head while the crocodile tries to pull the gorrilla towards water.
This is the part where I can see it going both ways.
My vote will go to the gorrilla because i think that after being smashed in the head a few hundred times the Crocodile will have either let go or died.

If it's a silverback vs a Nile croc, I vote gorilla. Say the croc bites an arm and tries to roll. The gorilla lifts the croc out of the water and proceeds to smash the hell out of it with over a thousand pounds of force per blow.

I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but the croc is so obviously the winner.

A crocodile has incredibly strong hide which I imagine can take blows from a gorilla I think the croc would grab the gorilla a tear off a limb and the gorilla would probably be in shock and be bleeding out and then the croc would finish it off.
