Alligators are able to jump out of the water. They have extremely strong tails that help them swim as well as push themselves upward with that and their sharp claws. Furthermore, an alligator’s tail acts as a propeller and enables them to reach heights equal to its body length out of the water.
In addition to jumping out of the water, these creatures are pretty fast runners and can reach speeds up to 15 miles per hour, however they can only run approximately 30 yards at that pace due to lactic acid build up. So it is true, alligators can run, climb and yes even jump out of water.
