Alligator and Crocodile plushie characteristics
Crocodiles and alligators are both reptiles belonging to the large crocodile family. This makes them related to lizards, frogs and to some extent, dragons and dinosaurs! Yet there are some important differences between both crocodiles and alligators and crocodile plushies and alligator plushies. For example, stuffed crocodiles tend to have narrower, “V” shaped mouths, while stuffed alligators have wider, “U” shaped snouts. Also, crocodile plushies often have more powerful jaws than alligator plushies.
You can recognize crocodiles and alligators mostly by their (dark) green scales. They are usually hard and have a rough, scaly texture. Fortunately, the scales of stuffed animal crocodiles and alligators are actually wonderfully soft. The scales provide a camouflage effect, making them harder for their prey to see. Zebra, ostrich and leopard plushies, beware!
Famous Alligators and Crocodiles (available as stuffed animals)
The most famous crocodile of all time is Tick-Tock from the popular animated film Peter Pan (1953). Tick-Tock is a true monster: the huge crocodile swallowed Captain Hook’s hand after Peter Pan chopped it off, which pleased the crocodile so much that he constantly pursued the vicious pirate afterwards. In addition to Hook’s hand, Tick-Tock also swallowed an alarm clock, and the clock’s persistant ticking constantly get on Hook’s nerves. Tick-Tock was immortalized as a stuffed animal crocodile many years ago and is still very popular. Another well-known alligator from the world of animation is Leatherhead from the popular comic book series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1984). He has a strong bond with the Ninja Turtles and is a loyal ally of theirs.
In addition, the crocodile was celebrated extensively by Steve Irwin, an Australian television personality, who became known as the “Crocodile Hunter”. A passionate environmentalist and wildlife enthusiast, Irwin became famous worldwide for his television programs such as The Crocodile Hunter (1996) and Croc Files (2001). Irwin worked extensively with crocodiles and worked hard to protect them.
