In South Carolina, residents stumbled upon an unusual sight.....an orange alligator!
In Hanahan, this interesting gator was spotted in a local pond numerous times recently. The alligator measured up to 4-5 feet in length.
According to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, the color may have come from the environment where the alligator recently visited like a rusty pipe. This could have caused the unusual color dyeing the skin. Experts say the alligator should return to its normal shade of color soon.
