An alligator that was captured yesterday at an apartment complex in Lexington.

A long snout. Small, needle-like teeth. Round, beady eyes.

It was a different kind of visitor that greeted a Lexington woman and her dog Sunday as they opened their front door on the way for an afternoon walk -- a baby alligator.

"It opened its mouth and hissed at the dog," said Nathan Bowling, Lexington-Fayette Animal Care and Control chief. The alligator was about a foot and a half long and resting on the woman's ground-level front porch, he said.
