Alligators have a lot more teeth than us. In fact, they have about 75 teeth. Again, unlikes, when their teeth wear out or break off, they are replaced. (Sure would have saved me a lot of money over the years).
Over the course of their lifetime they may have as many as 3000 teeth.
Unlike a lot of other reptiles, they care for their young of about 2 years. In contrast, something less than 10% of baby alligators are eaten by their parents. Must be the luck of the draw.
Here is something very interesting. Alligator blood is both antibiotic and antiviral. You have to ask why it couldn't somehow be used by us against diseases like the Corona virus?
