Gator Update (Belly-Rubbing Edition)

Thanks to Jeff Meyerson for the link.

Alligator antics liven up chamber luncheon: "Inquiring minds at the West Chester Chamber Alliance luncheon Jan. 8 needed to know.

If you rub an alligator's belly, will it fall asleep?

Apparently not.

As Thane Maynard, executive director of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, flipped Cruncher, a two-foot alligator onto his back for a demonstration, the reptile shot an arc of urine into the air, hitting one of the guests."

Well, that IS another sort of relaxation. One babies of all species are prone to, apparently.
