I would beware of e-mails you get from a tannery or tanner. Alligators are a little bit of a pain to tan. Therefore, a tanner e-mailing you to send them yours, is short on work. Ill let you figure out why they are short on work.

Look at leather directories online. There are a ton of tanneries too big to advertise on, or look at, taxidermy.net. Anyone dealing in specialty reptile leathers can do the 'gator in a belly skin or a hornback. If you want it mountable, use a taxidermy tannery.
