You remember the phrase, “See you later, alligator” ? This guy may be remembering it from jail. This man walked into a West Virginia pet store and stole baby gator.

The gator-napping happened last Tuesday at Pets & Things when the man picture above grabbed a 3-month-old reptile worth $300 from its cage and rolled it up in his shirt before snaking out of the place.

Luckily, surveillance video caught the robbery. Store employee Anthony Williams said the gator thief is a regular customer who already owns a gator.

“We gave the name to the police,”

Williams said,

Williams doesn’t think the gator thief got away clean saying,

“Baby alligators have sharper teeth than the bigger kind,” he said. “He probably was bit, unless he found a way to hold the snout shut.”
