A Florida man found an alligator in a tree, proving that gators aren't just for swamps anymore.
From the people who brought you bear in a bath and python on a fleece comes another animal in an unusual situation: GATOR IN A TREE.
According to WINK News, Ronald Saracino from Cape Coral, Florida said he saw an alligator climbing a tree while out doing whatever it is Floridians do (presumably looking for alligators to sell meth to).
Some, including Saracino himself, have questioned whether this is actually an alligator. "At first I thought maybe it was a lizard," said Saracino. Twitter user Christine K thought it was a monitor lizard.
But look at it. It's an alligator.
The most important takeaway from this story is that alligators have figured out that they can escape swamps, and are probably coming for us all. What's the next step in gator evolution? WINGS? I don't know, but I'm scared, and you should be too.
