American Alligator, with babies (Incredible Creatures by Safari Ltd.)

This walk-around covers the Incredible Creatures (American) Alligator with Babies, Alligator mississippiensis (Daudin, 1802). A huge figure, stretched out it would be approx. 481 mm total length and 242 mm snout-vent length. Considering normal adult lengths between 2.5 and 4.4 m (although larger specimens are known) the scale would be between 1:5 and 1:9. However, since the juveniles are quite large this and the generally smaller size of adult females would rather suggest the scale to be at the lower end of this range. I really like this interpretation of an American alligator showing parental care rather than the usual mouth gaping monster.
