From bathing, to feeding, to cleaning, in this video I share with you my day-to-day life with a pet alligator! Rex is a rescued American Alligator that had a rough past, but we try to make her as happy as possible now :)

You should not 'own' an alligator. They will grow, cost more to feed, and become unmanageable, until the only solution is to dump them somewhere in the wilderness and hope they survive. It's cruel, and no-one who calls him/herself an animal lover will attempt it. Please STOP the trafficking in wild animals---the solution STARTS with you!

I love seeing them on my walks they are so majestic --- i see them many times a week and so far i cant get near one they run away so fast and go in the water so i stopped trying to get closer there is like a 10 foot rule with them any closer they jet so fast... but i would not go closer than 8 feet even if i could i just wanted to find the limit lol

Oh my god how do you know he won’t whip around and bite you in the tub?will he keep growing? Does he ever get to go for a real swim? How old is he? You keep calling her he in parts of the video do I’m confused isn’t Rex a boy name? Can she ever be rehabilitated to be wild again? A pool can’t possibly be a suitable swim fir an alligator

I imagine she knows what she's doing, but that room looks neither sanitary for people living in that apartment nor adequate for an animal that size.

Thank you for sharing! She's lovely. THANK YOU for saying up front that alligators shouldn't be pets! They're way happier in the wild. But thank you for rescuing her from an awful situation!

*_This is truly incredible to witness! Rex is so timid! I'm so happy that you've been able to rescue him from all of those years of neglect! It's great that you've tried to warn viewers to NOT attempt to have an Alligator 🐊 for a pet. Unfortunately, I'm afraid that there will be viewers who're tempted to do just that based on how well you're able to deal with Rex. Especially adults with small children. For some incomprehensible reason, people with babies, infants and/or toddlers seem to have this insatiable urge to get animals (such as Pit Bulls) that are the VERY LAST things that should have access to said children._*

Do you only have to clean him cause he is a “pet” or do alligators in the wild do things to bath themselves?
Logan
Logan 17 days ago
they probably clean him because he is a social tame. (he is around people all the time, helping them learn about nature)

Well, yeah. Alligators belong in the wild but she’s unable to. You shouldn’t WANT an alligator, because in nearly all cases they’ll be neglected and stunted, exactly what happened to Rex.

If I tried to clean my caiman like that it would end very badly; they don't like being touched at all. They are extremely aggressive.

I'm surprised Rex doesn't hiss when you were brushing his teeth. Alligators are alot tamer than caimans.
