Most people, when they feel lonely around the house,
20. Friendly Animals
If there is something that everyone knows about alligators, then it has to be the fact that they are not the friendliest of the bunch. There aren't that many people who had a close encounter with an alligator and lived to tell the story.
19. Dangerous Beasts
Even though alligators are dangerous beasts, today's story will reveal that alligators can be quite friendly. They also have feelings and get attached to humans.
18. The Japanese Man
This is the Japanese man and his unusual pet, a Cayman alligator. The craziest thing about this is that the man is keeping the alligator in his home.
17. Home Pet
While you might expect the Japanese man to keep the alligator in a special cage or water tank, this is not the case. The reptile sleeps inside the man's home alongside his family. What do the other members of his family think about it?
16. Cayman On A Leash
I bet you never expected to see a ferocious Cayman alligator on a leash today. This is a rare sight and we don't think that there are any other alligators who would let someone put a leash on them.
15. Sweet Dreams
The Japanese man loves his pet very much and he doesn't let it sleep on the floor. The alligator has a special bed where he sleeps and he always stays tucked in.
14. Together Forever
The reason why the alligator and the old man get so well along is because they have been together since forever. The Japanese man remembers that he bought the alligator 34 years ago.
13. Great Memories
The man has lots of amazing memories with the alligator. The ferocious beast has always been by his side, even when his children were growing up.
12. Giant Beast
The alligator is no longer a small reptile and it now weighs in at 46 kg! To make things even scarier, the alligator is 2.1 meters long.
Isn't it incredible how a man has managed to basically tame a dinosaur? We only see this kind of stuff in Sci-Fi movies and cartoons.
10. Biting People
One of the most interesting things about this alligator is that he never tried to bite anyone. He grew up around humans and he doesn't see them as a threat.
9. Expensive Food
Since the alligator doesn't have what to hunt in the busy streets of Japan, the man needs to buy all his food from the local market. As you can clearly imagine, the expenses to have an alligator as a pet are pretty
8. Leaving For College
The man says that ever since his children left for college, he has been spending more and more time with his alligator. The ferocious beast has never left his side and he is grateful for that.
7. Adorable Pet
While most people would get a dog to keep them company after their children leave for college, this man decided to do things his own way and get an alligator.
Another thing that we can be sure about has to be the fact that the man never has to worry about thieves breaking into his house late at night. The alligator will be waiting for them!
5. Local Celebrity
The man spends most of his days walking on the streets of Japan and his alligator pet has become a local celebrity. Everyone stops to take a picture with the reptile, especially the little kids.
4. Taking Pictures
The alligator doesn't shy away from taking pictures and instead, it actually likes to pose around people. Isn't that cool?
3. Teaching Kids
The man is using his local fame as an opportunity to teach children valuable lessons about reptiles. Alligators are not that easy to find in Japan and kids love to see them.
2. Visiting Schools
The man is invited to schools quite often because there's no better way to teach kids about alligators other than to show them one.
1. Best Friend
This picture is not of a man and his pet. It's a picture of a man and his best friend. These two have been together for 34 years and no one is ever going to break them apart.
