A Florida reptile park, Gatorland Orlando, has taken in an alligator that lost its nose and upper jaw, likely due to a fight or boat propeller. The injured alligator was rescued from a lake in Sanford, about 20 miles northeast of Orlando. The park stated that the gator had “basically no chance of surviving in the wild with such a severe injury.” Over the next few days, the park’s veterinarian staff will be monitoring the gator to ensure it is eating in a stress-free environment. To entice the gator to eat, small pieces of food are being cut up and tossed in the back of its throat. The staff believes this is how the gator survived in the wild, by eating snails, slugs, and frogs.
