The skull of an alligator is very thick and strong, but so are the legs of a gator: they can jump five feet straight up into the air! So although an alligator's head may be weak compared to other parts of its body, its legs are still dangerous because they can strike hard objects such as logs or rocks when trying to escape from danger. An alligator's tail also serves as a useful weapon, being about three feet long and composed of hard scales that can break a man's back if he is not careful. Also, the tail has a powerful nerve center at the base of the spine which sends electrical signals throughout the body when threatened.
