Bernie the gator is a friend to all animals, protector of nature, and the proud mascot of Safari Ltd®. Bernie is a champion of knowledge, creativity and conservation, and now you can take him home with you!
- History: Bernie's story began in Elberfeld Germany, but his travels would lead him to the United States, and he eventually settled in South Florida, the “Home of the Alligator”. He met his wife Rosemarie in the 1940s, and together they devoted their life to education and conservation. In 1982 they founded Safari Ltd® to further this devotion, creating Toys That Teach® to help others learn about the wonderful natural world around them.
- Scientific Name: Alligator mississippiensis berneii
- Characteristics: With his friendly features, our Bernie toy is a bit more stylized than our usual ultra accurate offerings. His edges aren’t quite as rough as those of most alligators, reflecting his soft and warm nature.

- Bernie is part of the Wild Safari® Wildlife collection.
- All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
