  • History

    Alligators actually have a prominent economical role for humans. Besides being raised commercially for their meat and skin, they provide a large benefit for the ecotourism industry. Tourists can take swamp tours, also known as swamp safaris, of which the main feature is alligators. In America, they’re also used to control the population of small pests, including muskrats. Despite its large size and strong bite, we promise that this gator isn’t the least bit cranky!
