Alligator Paper Craft
This is a simple cut and paste paper craft good "just for fun", a reptile theme, or a Florida/Louisiana, USA or China theme.
There are only two countries in the world that have alligators.
The alligators in China are an endangered species. American
alligators are not -- they live from the Carolinas to Florida and
along the Gulf Coast.
