American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) named Muja is considered to be the oldest living alligator in the world.

He traveled to Belgrade Zoo a year after it was founded on 12th September 1937 already as an adult specimen, along with one more alligator from some German zoo. 
Today he is the only remaining from the Zoo residents that managed to survive World War II, during which the Zoo was completely demolished in bombings.
Muja is in great shape, he is fed once a week with 5-6 kilos of meat.
His longevity will affect the upper limit of this animal species lifespan which scientists could not specify in nature.

We hope he will live for many more years in our Zoo and that he will become absolute world record holder in longevity among alligators.
