Crocodilians are not like dogs or cats where they show loving or caring emotion. Your crocodilian is most likly closing its eyes because of fear. These guys have been around for hundreds of millions of years and aren't program to care for humans. I'm not saying what your doing is bad, I think its good to hold your croc so when they grow larger it may get used to being handled.
Good luck,


:Sully is about 6 mths now, but still sometimes when I hold her closely & try to make her feel secure, she closes her eyes like she's sleeping. It doesn't take anything to make her open her eyes and get moving but I was just wandering if this is typical behavior or if I'm especially lucky to be able to calm her in this way?
