Alligator men are humanoid versions of the common alligator and a species of animal people, found in savage swamps and rivers. They are nearly 4 times bigger than dwarves when adults and spawn in groups of 1-3 individuals, and as such make potentially dangerous opponents to the average unarmed civilian. Approach them with caution.

Like other savage animal people, alligator men may occasionally join civilizations, becoming full-fledged citizens who may appear in your fortress as visitors or be playable in adventurer mode. Due to being based on the raw files of the normal animal, they lack the ability to jump.

Some dwarves like alligator men for their strength.

Fearless and "cold-blooded".

Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Be wary around alligator women, for they are known for biting the legs of careless dwarves in taverns.

There have been instances of "big-lipped" alligator men appearing out of nowhere and causing confusion and/or laughter, before quickly leaving.

Some visitors may enjoy alligator men as performers in taverns, but care should be taken due to heavy rivalry between them and hare men, especially when deciding the bassist of a four-animal person band.
