Look's like a nile crock... should i be worried? Did I say something wrong?

Two points here...

1) Crocodiles have been morphologically almost unchanged for a hundred millions of years.  Though some variations died out... have you see cheetah croc?

2) The other point is that even if they are morphologically similar, evolution is still occurring.  Think of it as stabilizing selection.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stabilizing_selection

The crocs of today and the crocs of 100 million years ago are very different genetically, even they are morphologically the same.

Same thing with Ceolocanths.
