Footage of a supposed “sewer alligator” has emerged on the internet. Stories of the animals living in city sewer systems date back as early as the 1920’s and are usually thought of as mere legends, but several photographs, such as this recent one, may prove otherwise. It is thought that baby gators were bought from pet shops by unknowing owners and were cruelly flushed down the toilet or discarded into rivers when they began to grow rapidly. Many people think that some alligators survived and managed to breed, producing a long line of these underground “sewer gators”.
