  • Scientific Name: Genus Alligator
  • Characteristics: Not only are alligators one of the biggest known reptiles, they also have one of the strongest bites, and can chomp down with a force of over 2000 pounds per square inch! Discover more amazing facts about this specialized and impressive creature with our beautifully hand painted and realistically crafted figurine.
  • Size and Color: All alligators are predominantly dark green and brown, this model included, because it allows them to camouflage amidst the murky waters they inhabit. 6 inches long and 3.5 inches wide, both dimensions of this figurine are about an inch larger than soda can on its side.

  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free
  • History:

    Believe it or not, alligators actually have a fairly important economical role in the regions they’re endemic too. Besides being raised commercially for their meat and skin, they’re a large part of the ecotourism industry, especially in the southern United States. Tourists can take swamp tours, also known as swamp safaris, specifically designed to show off these amazing predators. Despite its large size and strong bite, we promise this alligator is rather amicable!
