Gator Update (It's not a Caiman Edition)

Alligator leads to charges for man | Spartanburg, South Carolina | | Spartanburg Herald-Journal: "A Spartanburg County man wound up in legal lukewarm water last week after he was charged with illegally possessing a juvenile American alligator.

Herbert Dalton Cox Jr. is accused of knowingly and illegally possessing the alligator in violation of a state law, but Cox said he thought he had a baby caiman.

'You can have those,' Cox said. 'I've wanted one my whole life. I wanted a real alligator, but a caiman was closest thing to it.'"
