Testimonial:
Director: Marcus Nispell
Producer: Lisa Rich
Production Company: MJZ
Client: Lubriderm

"We recently had the pleasure of working with Animal Makers on a Lubriderm spot with one of our commercial directors, Marcus Nispel. Animal Makers was extremely cooperative and easy to work with, especially with the budgetary and timing constraints that we were under. Accordingly, we were able to save time and money by using their existing stable of quality animatronics alligators. Both the director and the client were extremely pleased with the results and as Executive Producer at MJZ, I was very pleased with the process and the way in which Animal Makers handled us as client." - Lisa Rich, Executive Producer

Animal Makers Caiman

Caiman | Crocodile

Item # 1044

These extremely realistic caimans were sculpted and molded right here at Animal Makers for a A&E Cable Network television series ("The Glades") and commissioned by one of Hollywood's true professionals, Scott Ambrose. The next year, these were spotted online and booked for a smokin hot Lana Del Rey Music Video! That video features Lana swimming with her boyfriend with visual references to swimming with albino gators. They are 8' long and weigh about 70 lbs. when dry. Considerably more weight when they are wet! They are approximately 8' (2.3m) long and created from silicone and inner urethane foam (to keep the shape). These props can go in water. There are currently 4 in stock. They are colored as albinos, but can be changed to the coloring of your choice.

American Alligator Replica

Item#: 3209


DESCRIPTION: This item is a realistic, full-sized at 9'0" long (2.74 meters), flexible model of an alligator ready to work in the water. Created from tough urethane foam covered in skin-like silicone, with an enhanced paint job. Looks great at water's edge or even in the water. Inside of mouth fully detailed. One of the hardest working props here at AMI. In great shape and ready to work. Small white spot on tail can be removed, but is shown for accuracy.
PERFORMANCE NOTES: This alligator replica can be pulled through the water using monofilament. Also, the tail can be whipped back and forth using monofilament as well. Since it's flexible, think of this replica as a marionnette. It does get heavy once settled into the water. Almost like it doesn't want to leave! Looks much better in a natural environment, instead of sitting on our shelving.
SHIPPING NOTES: This item fits into a crate that is 10' long, 4' wide and 18" tall. The entire shipment weighs approximately 150 pounds. A crate is currently in stock at Animal Makers (1/2014).
HISTORICAL NOTES: Alligator mississippiensis ENDANGERED SPECIES
ADVERTISING USE: Izod / Lacoste clothing (symbol came from the nickname of Rene Lacoste, a French tennis player in the 1930's, first used on clothing in 1951). Lubriderm also uses an alligator in it's advertising. The live alligator used in those ads actually lives right here in Southern California and is only 6' long.

DREAM SYMBOL: Usually refers to caution or fear

STATE REPTILE: Florida (designated in 1987)

UNIVERSITY SPORTS SYMBOL: University of Florida, Gainesville, FL (Go Gators!)

Artificial Crocodile

American Alligator, Baby

Item # 1048


This is a foamed latex replica taken from the molds originally sculpted at Animal Makers. It is 48" long. This version is very flexible and easy to handle. Will work as a live animal replacement in a live or video presentation.
Since it is easy to manipulate and perform, we find that these don't usually need any animatronics installed. That is an available option, though.

Alligator Replica Backs

Item # 1041


These are actual film props that include the top part of the alligator, as you would see it in the water. Great for a Family Entertainment Center, mini-Golf, or themed attraction.  Originally created for a feature film "Ace Ventura; When Nature Calls" to fill a pond. Now you can fill your pond just like Jim Carey! We have a few remaining that are actually from that movie and are ready to move out. Approximately 9' (2.75 m) long and 1' wide. Only one left of these. Ships easily in a flat box (similar to large guitar). Built of tough urethane skin and foam inside. You can't kick a mark into these! Will sit out in your pond for years to come! Everybody passing by will think you've got a pond full of gators.
