To the best of my knowledge, there are no gators in England. This one is headed there. I bought him at a yard sale on this side of the Pond, and sold him to a person on the other side of the Pond. Admittedly, there are probably other non-living gator somethings over there, but he might still be a one of a kind. Every other ceramic character bank I have ever seen has had a coin slot in the back, or on the top of the head. His coin slot is in his mouth. By the looks of his midriff, it appears he is capable of swallowing plenty of other things as well.
