Story highlights

The alligator, named Saturn, was about 84 years old when he died on Friday.

An alligator that was believed to have once belonged to Adolf Hitler has died at the Moscow Zoo.

The alligator, named Saturn, was about 84 years old when he died on Friday.

Saturn was born in the United States and later sent to the Berlin Zoo, from which he later escaped. His whereabouts were unknown until 1946, when British soldiers found him and gave him to the Soviet Union.

It was then alleged that he belonged to the collection of Hitler and not in the Berlin Zoo.
