These mini Alligators are quite a bit smaller than the real things, so they’re perfect for art projects, charms, sports team spirit giveaways, or decorations. They also work in dioramas or school projects.
Most people associate Alligators with North American swamps and Crocodiles with the Nile River. While Alligators do live throughout the wetlands of the southeastern United States, there is also a species that lives in China. And while Crocs do still swim the upper Nile, some species also live in Florida, central America, India, southeast Asia, and of course, Australia. Alligators were once considered an endangered species in the U.S., but extensive conservation efforts have brought them back from the brink. In fact, they are considered threatened by some organizations today only to provide protection for the similar American Crocodile, which does face an uncertain future.
