* The dog wizard Tibbeth's shop in ''Literature/StrangerAtTheWedding'' (1994) by Creator/BarbaraHambly:
-->A mummified crocodile hung from the low rafters overhead.
** The trope is played with, in that it is a common wizard's prop in-universe, and its use is eventually explained - it's hanging until it is entirely mummified, at which point it will be cut to pieces for use in potions and replaced by a fresh one.

* On ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' [[TheCaptain Sisko's]] father has an alligator hanging from the ceiling of his restaurant, despite not being an apothecary. Then again, his restaurant is in [[TheBigEasy New Orleans]], so it may have just been for the local atmosphere.

* There's an ''actual'' stuffed alligator suspended from the ceiling at the Amsterdam house (now museum) where Rembrandt once lived. It's one of a variety of taxidermied animals thought to have been used as models for his artwork.
* Suspending articulated skeletons in a "swimming" pose from the ceiling is a common way for natural history museums to display large marine vertebrates. Although whales are most commonly exhibited in this way, reptiles such as plesiosaurs, pliosaurs, mosasaurs, sea turtles, and (yes) marine crocodilians have also been presented as overhead skeletons.
