 Caiman or Alligator?

Can anyone tell me if this is a caiman or an alligator? I know that Caimans are technically classified as alligators, but I’m not sure if anyone can tell me what it is from the picture. Sorry for the bad quality, and I appreciate in advance the help!

To be honest with you it looks fake, but to take my best guess I have to say caiman as well. Look at the snout. Not all that rounded and the color also is a big give away. At that size alligators still have some nice yellow bands.
