At Florida some people call alligators - lagartos, someother call them "cocodrilos" although they are not cocodrile.
Also, some people eat alligator meat; there are some places, that serves meals made of alligator, at the souvenir stores you could find alligator jerkey or alligator sausage.

Funny enough, "alligator" comes from Spanish. English took "el lagarto", distorted its pronunciation, created a new spelling for it, and added to its dictionary, like we did with many Arabic words, incorporating their articles to create new vocabulary.

or caimán (alligator .vs. crocodile), but with shoes, bagage -cocodrilo
Our dictionary also lists aligador, but I suppose the client was trying to say "alligator" in English since "la gotto" doesn't sound like any of the Spanish words.

And Sukiyaka, I suppose we would be remiss if we did not remind you to not type your questions in capital letters. See the forum rules.
