A mama alligator can't pick up her young 'uns by the scruff of the neck to haul them around. She's got to use what's available to her -- that big, scary mouth.
Fortunately, she is much gentler with them than she would be with you. You probably taste better. You're definitely a more satisfying mouthful.
