One of the largest reptiles on planet Earth, the alligator is made up of two distinct species, the American and the Chinese alligator. Alligators date back nearly 36 million years, and their relatives first arose during the golden era of the dinosaurs!
Believe it or not, alligators actually have a fairly important economical role in the regions they’re endemic too. Besides being raised commercially for their meat and skin, they’re a large part of the ecotourism industry, especially in the southern United States. Tourists can take swamp tours, also known as swamp safaris, specifically designed to show off these amazing predators.
