Orange Alligator Seen In South Carolina

Residents of Hanahan, South Carolina were recently surprised to see an orange alligator.  Because it reminded some people of our new president's hair, it's been called "Trumpagator" (although I think "Boehnergator" would also have worked).  The reptile is reportedly between 4 and 5 feet long, which would make it a sub-adult.  No one seems to know how it acquired its orange hue, but it's not believed to be genetic.  Since gators shed their skin, this one will eventually revert to looking normal.
