Behind the meaning -gator... it's the same as in alli-gator (lol).
I think Puzz was referring to a word for an animal living in the rivers of the OLB "Pangab" (Punjab), the "algaettar" :
We have discussed this name for many pages on end.
The alligator lives in the West-Indies, the OLB "algaettar" lived in India (the 'East-Indies").
But "alligator" is the Spanish name for a specie of crocodiles that only lives in the Americas.
