Is it legal in the U.S. to make and sell products from alligator skin?

    Yes. All legal alligator leather products from Italy, France, Japan and the US, are made from the American alligator. The American alligator was removed from the endangered species list since 1987.

    While selling alligator leather is legal, it is illegal to deal in leather from endangered species like the Black Caiman of Brazil. The differences between the American alligator and endangered species are very subtle, and strict rules and regulations require alligator hides to be tagged with a serial number so manufacturers can identify authentic alligator leather.
