Why Is This Alligator Orange? No One Knows!

Why Is This Alligator Orange? No One Knows!

Why is there an orange alligator in a pond near Charleston, South Carolina?

Too much self-tanning lotion. Or maybe it’s a fan of the Clemson Tigers.

No one knows, but residents living near a pond in the Tanner Plantation neighborhood near Hanahan keep seeing a orange 4- to 5-foot-long alligator.

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.

In the meanwhile, neighbors have dubbed him the “Trump-A-Gator.”
