The Alligator is an animal species featured in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Description

The alligator is a large reptile endemic to the southeastern parts of the map. They come in two sizes - regular and small - and each has its own compendium page, however they are the same species.

A skin from a regular-sized alligator will take up the large carcass space on the back of the player's horse, but a skin from a small size alligator can be layered on like hides from deer, etc.

A small alligator carcass can be placed on the back of the horse, but a regular size carcass cannot be picked up, like the Boar. One perfect alligator skin is needed for the Alligator Ranch Cutter Saddle at the Trapper.

Despite their size and ability to kill players very quickly, alligators can be easily killed via a single shot to the head by a rifle.

Location

Alligators live in the swamp and river delta regions of Lemoyne in southern Bluewater Marsh and all around Bayou Nwa.

Tips

  • A rifle will easily kill an alligator, because of its ability to pierce through the animal's tough skin.
    • A Rolling Block Rifle will allow the player to kill them from a farther distance without having to risk getting close.
      • A bow with improved arrows is also a good alternative.
  • Alligators cannot be skinned in water. It is best to find and kill an alligator lying on the shore.
  • Alligator eggs can be sold for a good profit, with each bundle earning around $12.

Compendium

Alligators live in the swamp and river delta regions of Lemoyne - in southern Bluewater Marsh and all around Bayou Nwa. They are carnivorous apex predators, feeding on fish, birds, amphibians and mammals. A rifle will pierce through an Alligator's tough, armored body plates. Alligator skins, meat, and teeth are all useful for food or crafting. They have the same appearance as a regular alligator; green, scaly skin, a long tail, a large, gaping mouth and eyes protruding from either side of the head.[1]
