The Creature from Bubbly Creek

You expect it in Key Largo,
but up here in Chicago,
there's really no excuse
for a gator on the loose.

One showed up in our river today:
The alligator has teeth, but is not an adult. It is about 4 or 5-years-old and is about 4 feet long. They eat fish [but] are unpredictable around humans. The alligator was found in an area called Bubbly Creek where large carp were also swimming nearby.
There's a nice pic at the link.  It's sooo cute.  Just a little baby.  With adorably sharp teeth.

Go home!  Head for points due south!
My toes don't want to meet your mouth.
