Interesting alligator facts! Paul, Colleen, and Clark, ages 5, 3, and 7 sent in some interesting alligator facts!
They grow about a foot a year when they are little and they never stop growing.
The biggest ones are about 900 pounds.
There was more talk on the radio this morning clearing up the confusion on how much meat processors get from these big alligators. TJ mentioned that Cordray's got about 200 lbs. of packaged meat from the 627 lb. alligator that's been on the news. That's the one we got in Saturday night that was 13 ft. 1.75 inches. He had kind words to say about us and we appreciate it!

Cordray's Venison Processing
6708 County Line Rd.
Ravenel, SC 29470
There's been a lot of talk recently about how much meat comes from one of these big gators. Much of the chatter is because it was reported that another processor got 40 lbs. of meat from an animal weighing over 1000 lbs. This picture will help give you perspective. An alligator's tail produces 4 sections of meat - large sections in the case of this 713 lb. gator! One of these sections weighs 39 lbs.!
