polo outlet lebanon tn Florida gator wears clothes and rides on back of motorcycle
WFLA LAKELAND, Fla. A Lakeland woman is fighting to keep her pet alligator, Rambo. The 6 foot long, 125 pound reptile wears clothes, rides on the back of a motorcycle and has a bedroom in Mary Thorn’s home.
Thorn said that she considers Rambo more like her child, especially after her son passed away a year ago. She also says she has trained him not to bite. “He sits on the couch. He knows how to work the remote. So, he’s just a house gator,” she said. “He just wants to be babied.”
Mary Thorn provided this photo of her pet alligator, Rambo. Via AP Morse did say they are looking into a change in the wildlife code, which currently requires someone have 2.5 acres of land in order to possess an alligator of that size. He said they are also looking into a number of other issues but would not elaborate. Morse would not give any indication when a determination would be made.
Thorn is concerned because Rambo was raised inside, without sunlight. She says he can’t be left outdoors because he is sensitive to sunlight. “He hates it outside. He hates grass. When he hears crickets, he gets scared,” she said.
