Alligator Conservation & History
Through strict laws, alligators may be harvested during state-controlled public hunts. Programs have been established by states for the removal of nuisance wild gators. Alligators are raised on farms for their skin and meat. Since the early 1800s, alligator skins have been sold to tanneries around the world for excellent high-quality leather. The by-products of this industry are the heads, feet, and teeth that are sold as souvenirs. With a population of 5 million wild alligators, the contact between people and alligators is increasing daily.
You are buying one similar to those pictured but not the exact one pictured. These alligator heads are approximately 5 inch to 6 1/2 inches long, sourced from 3-foot alligators. They might have chipped and/or missing teeth, scratches, and other imperfections from living in the water, fighting, and aging. A taxidermy process cures the alligator skin and the alligator skull so it will be preserved for years. Alligators have between 74 and 80 teeth in their mouth at a time. As teeth wear down, they are replaced. An alligator can go through 2,000 to 3,000 teeth in a lifetime. There will be an odor from the clear sealant used on these heads. The odor will subside over time. These are real gator heads - NOT replicas.
