Gator Update (Clueless Edition)

Long Island liquor store owner believed pet alligator was just a large lizard: "A pet alligator pulled from a Long Island liquor store this week even surprised its owner, who thought the reptile was just a large lizard.

The 3-foot gator had been living in a storage room for about two months at Alpine Wine & Liquor in Wading River - where workers fed the beast about 45 goldfish a day, officials and the owner said.

'We didn't know it was an alligator,' said owner Nancy Corcione. 'I didn't think it was illegal. We had no clue.'"
