Alligators are large reptiles that can be commonly found swimming in lakes and swamps! They not only use their large tails for swimming but also for defending themselves against predators such as bears and eagles which would eat young alligators. 

Toilet paper roll crafts are so easy to make using only a few materials, plus you can use these as puppets or pretend play toys afterwards. 

My step by step alligator toilet paper roll craft instructions will help you make this in under 10 stages.
