Snapping Swamp Gator Statue
Love it! And so do my guests!
Moved recently to Florida....and own a home with a nice Lanai and pool. Well - what a more perfect accent for the pool in Florida...then this Gator!
It looks awesome! It's also nice and heavy and places easily around the pool.
I love it. It's a great conversation piece from my friends and family who visit.

Lots of compliments
I love it but the gator arrived with black speckles all over the open mouth that I was unable to wash off. I didn't send it back because of the weight and possible cost.

Awesome Alligator Statue
I just received the "Snapping Swamp Gator Statue" and it's simply gorgeous! The photo doesn't do it justice. I had originally purchased it to put in my flower garden, but upon seeing it, I have decided it needs to be on display inside of my house! The attention to detail is perfect and the colors are stunning! I am surprised the price isn't MUCH higher than it is.

Gator keeps the ducks and geese out of my pool
Pros: In past years, ducks and Canada geese would frequently stop at my pool for a swim. This year, I put the Snapping Swamp Gator next to my pool. I haven't had a duck or goose in the pool all summer, and this makes Gator well worth the price.
Cons: The paint is already coming off in several places.
Tips: For best results, put Gator out before ducks and geese start coming, and move Gator every few days.

Great for Halloween and Home
I bought this alligator to add to my Halloween display. Any doubts I had about ordering it were allayed when I opened the box. It is just a really good looking alligator. It was packed very well. It has nice coloring and looks great from every angle. Like many of my Halloween purchases from Toscano, it has found its place in my year-round home decor. Great piece! Makes me wish I had a pool.

Gets a lot of double-takes from the boaters passing by.....
The size and realistic design are totally believable and brings a lot of comments, especially when I tell people "there's an alligator on my dock! "
The recommendations I might offer are that there needs to be a drain hole in his throat so water doesn't remain and collect there. (I "stuffed" mine with expanding foam after routing pvc tubing from mouth through body). The thickness of the bottom of the statue could be thicker and would help in the fastening to a surface.
In all, I have found Toscano products to be well designed and of good value.
