Clutch Size

Generally, the clutch size of the Chinese Alligator species is quite small - an average of 20 to 30 eggs.

You'll find that Chinese Alligators in captivity have larger clutches than those in the wild.

At the time of writing this (June, 2018), the largest ever reported clutch size at ARCCAR (Anhui Research Center of Chinese Alligator Reproduction) was 49 eggs. Similar clutch sizes have been reported by the Changxing Breeding Centre.
