Lifelike, detailed figurine of an Alligator, part of the Schleich Wildlife Collection! This Schleich animal figurine has been meticulously hand-painted and is equipped with the Schleich tag bearing the red S, symbol for high quality and compliancy with all relevant safety regulations. Fun facts: The alligator is a dangerous predator with exceptionally strong jaw muscles. Only the white shark can bite harder than him. The interesting thing: Only the muscles that close the jaws are extremely strong. The muscles that open the snout are so weak that they can be closed with simple tape. Compared to the saltwater crocodile, alligators are smaller and much wider. They live only in rivers and lakes in the south-eastern part of the United States and China.
