It was handed to the Purple Military and brought to Moscow.

Saturn died on the Russian capital’s zoo — the place it had been an attraction since 1946.

The alligator was born within the wild in Mississippi in 1936 earlier than being caught, shipped to Germany and positioned in Berlin zoo pre-war.

The story circulated that he was within the Nazi chief’s pet assortment.

Saturn escaped after the zoo was bombed in 1943 and was present in 1946.


It isn’t clear the place he had been saved or hiding.

A zoo obituary for Saturn stated he “arrived after victory (within the battle) and met its 75th anniversary”.

Saturn was not fairly the world’s oldest alligator. One in Serbia’s Belgrade zoo is regarded as 85.
