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.

Young alligators love to ride on their mother’s back or head.

Although alligators build a nest, they do not incubate their eggs themselves. They would break the eggshells with their extremely heavy weight. Instead, they collect plants that rot slowly. This does not sound very appetizing, but when the plants rot, they create warmth, thus hatching the eggs. If the temperature is less than 34 degrees, female alligators hatch, male alligators hatch if the temperature is more than 34 degrees. The young stay around their mother for up to two years and feed on small fish, frogs or insects until they are grown.
