DANGER, DANGER, DANGER!!!
THESE AMERICAN ALLIGATOR SKELETON HEADS ARE REAL, from a gator
farm in LOUISIANA. THESE
ARE ALL CONSIDERED "JUMBO" SIZE! Here's an example so you
can appreciate just how big they are and how many we have, here's our
stash under just one of our tables!
The AMERICAN ALLIGATOR (Alligator
Mississippiensis) is the
largest reptile in North America. The first reptiles appeared 300 million
years ago; the ancestors of the American alligator appeared 160 million years
ago and it has not changed since then, indeed a modern dinosaur. Gators
are found only in the Southeastern United States and China.

Nope. Give up?
It's an alligator tongue! It's
real leather. Remember, when the gators are legally hunted and
processed, 100% of it is used. Nothing is wasted! These are
usually made into WALLETS or BELT BUCKLES.
can you tell the difference between a CROCODILE head and an ALLIGATOR
1. When the mouth is closed, a croc's
teeth STILL SHOW, and a gator's does not.
2. Gators have BLUNT heads and horny
backs; crocs have less bumpy skin and longer, narrower heads.
3. Crocs are found in Africa, Asia,
Australia & the Americas. Gators are found only in China and the
4. Most if not all crocodiles are
considered endangered species. Most gators are not.

From a gator farm in Louisiana, these are
AMERICAN ALLIGATORS (alligator mississipiensis). They were
endangered but have now achieved protected status. As such, numerous
regulations exist to safeguard this great animal and provide for its
future survival. Every farmed gator is assigned a unique number by
the Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries to ensure that only legally harvested
gators are used for the products that put them in such high demand
worldwide. This number is written in felt marker in the side of each
gator's jaw. The gators are raised for the hides.
By law, the whole animal must be recycled. Soooo.....the guts go to the
cat and dog food companies (animal byproducts!!), the meat is eaten
locally, and the feet, heads and teeth go into the tourist industry, as you see
here. Are you sure you really wanted to know?

GATOR SKULL, 27" long
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Reed,
I found your site while trying to research
information on wild alligators and was very impressed with your
experience. While I was unable to find the answers I was looking
for, I wondered if you might be able to help provide some information
about an alligator skull I found recently (submerged in 2' of water)
in SW Florida. I did not want to damage the skull, so I've done
nothing but bleach and clean it (and the teeth) and paint a
protective coating of white glue and water on it. Nature had already
reduced the tissue down to the bone by the time I found it.
Here are some pictures for you so you can
see it's massive size. Here are the measurements I took:
27" from longest point to longest point when
measured with the top and bottom jaw fitted together
15" from mid eye to mid nostril
13" across the widest part of the head
8" across the nose
3.5" canine with a 3"
7.75" from tip to tip of the upper
this must have been some gigantic creature,
and I would love to know as much as possible about it.
WOW !!!! What a monster you have there.
This is a gator that would have been some 15 foot plus in length and at
least 15 years old. The time line is standard due to the length . They
grow about 12'' per year. The length for the center of the eyes to the
center of the nostril will give you the length and age of the gator.
This was in the water less than a year as
there isn't 100% coloration showing on the entire bone structure.
You have done a wonderful job of cleaning
it and there really isn't anything else to coat it with that over time
won't turn it yellow. As you handle it the oil from your body will cause
it to yellow. So, about once a year, just soak it in household bleach
for about three hours , then soak it for 6 hours in cold water. This
will stop the bleach.
The holes and cracks that you have
described are normal,as there are 9 different plates making up the top
skull, and the holes are part of the nasal system. From what I can tell
this is a very good skull and would retail for about $800. and the
wholesale price to a dealer would be half that.
I hope this helps you with filling in the
blanks as to what you have there.
Thank you so much for getting back to me, and
so quickly! Wow! I guess I was right...this was a monster. It's
great to know more about him! Actually, from what I now read on
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Web Site, this may be one of the largest
alligators ever found in Florida! Here's a quote from their
alligators rarely exceed 9 feet in length, but males can grow much larger.
The Florida state record
for length is a 14 foot 5/8
inch male from Lake Monroe in Seminole County. The Florida record for
weight is a 1,043 pound (13 feet 10 1/2 inches long) male from Orange Lake
in Alachua County. FWC biologists have published an article on the
maximum size of the alligator.
Roger (as we've named him) has become a part
of our family and people are always impressed with him. Now
when people want to touch him to see if he's real (and they ALWAYS do!),

customer RUSS in WISCONSIN
sent this photo of the gator head he bought
from us, mounted on his BOAT! A real "Lake Placid"
(we advised him to make it removable, or keep
it protected from the weather as often as possible).
Russ has added a comment: Heidi, thanks again.
Its getting lots of laughs on the water, but Spalding my potbellied pig is
suspicious of him. I think its the teeth.
bugs in the gator enclosure - BEWARE!
