This taxidermy preserved alligator claw is a great teaching tool, decor piece or even as a gift for boys and girls who love nature. Alligators have been around for approximately 37 million years, first appearing during the Oligocene epoch. There are two living species of Alligator, the American alligator (A. mississippiensis) and its smaller counterpart, the Chinese Alligator (A. sinensis). The term “alligator” is derived from the Spanish term for lizard.
Alligators are known to be found in large numbers when smaller, with large male alligators being solitary and very territorial animals. Though they have a heavy body, Alligators are capable of short burts of speed in very short lunges. Alligators are known for dragging large prey into water to drown, but usually prey on smaller prey they can kill and eat in a single bite.
These preserved alligator feet specimens have been professionally preserved and sealed with a polyurethane clear coat. They are often used as display specimens in glass domes, and are great for collectors of unique and unusual curiosities.
