Farm raised Alligator Heads are smaller and sized by total length of the item. Size may be more or less by one half inch (+/- 1/2 inch). Farm heads can be between 5 inches and 10 inches, and are available year round. They may be rare in larger and smaller sizes, depending on the time of the year.
This is a taxidermied alligator head. The gator was raised on a farm and harvested for the meat and hide. The head and feet area a by-product which has been preserved and made into a unique gift.
These unique gifts are covered by black felt back and bottom of the head.
The actual size of the alligator can be estimated accurately by measuring the distance from the nostril to the middle of the eye ridge. 1 inch equals 1 foot. So a 4 inch measurement from the top of the eye to the tip of the nostril means the head comes from a 4 foot alligator. There is no overlap in sizes between farm raised alligator heads and the larger wild alligator heads.
