Overview

An alligator (often called a gator) looks a lot like a huge lizard.
They have thick, hard skin across the top of their body. This skin is greenish brown in color. It is covered with bony plates. These plates help keep the gator safe. They are just like a turtle's shell.
The skin on their belly is much softer and thinner. It is also much lighter in color. Some gators have a belly that is almost white in color.
