"Shoot him, Junior!" This gator ran afoul of a very lucky gator getter. The new owner will be even luckier saving hundreds of dollars acquiring this trophy as compared to a guided gator hunt and taxidermy. (One local taxidermist charges $10,000 to mount alligators.) His real skin has been carefully preserved as he was mounted in a lifelike attacking pose. The quality of this mount earns it our taxidermy quality rating of Excellent.
