Meet the 'Trumpagator,' South Carolina's orange alligator
HANAHAN, S.C. (AP) — No one seems to know why there's an orange alligator in a pond near Charleston.
Image
Residents joke the gator used too much self-tanning lotion. Or maybe it's a fan of the Clemson Tigers, who are known for their orange colors. Residents living near the pond in Hanahan say they've seen the orange or rust-colored alligator a number of times. Photos show the 4- to 5-foot-long alligator on the banks of a retention pond at the Tanner Plantation neighborhood. Jay Butfiloski with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources says the color may come from where the animal spent the winter, perhaps in a rusty steel culvert pipe. Experts say the alligator will shed its skin and probably return to a normal shade soon.
Last month, a giant alligator that looks like a dinosaur got Florida residents talking.

Now I can't say for sure ...but if this 'Trumpagator' had been located down around Mar-a-Lago {Trumps Vacation Home} ...I'd be think'n that all of that residual 'ORANGE GLOW' /fake blow on tan he wears had caused this :yikes:

But since this was found in South Carolina :dunno:
Just say'n, all of those human body washes and accoutrements are clogging up our water treatment facilities: Orange will be the new wild life color for many a aquatic species. :ooer:

I saw this - glad you posted it.

Now for something truly incredible - a new species of fish-scaled gecko (Geckolepis megalepis) that sheds it's skin on demand as a defence mechanism against predators! :cool:

Amazing ...fully understood about the reason why some lizards can drop their tails/grow new ones - store up fat in their expendable tail sections for the female during egg laying/nurturing periods ...but this - WOW!

Such an elusive feline and I often wonder how their numbers are doing with the global warming and massive regions suffering ice thaw ...I'd hate to think that they'd just disappear and we'd not know about it. But we seem unable to save so many struggling species.

Great thread and great pics. I cannot bring myself to appreciate creepy crawlies though. :ooer: I kind of agree with this guy on spiders.
