A 44-year-old woman from the US has been keeping an alligator as her pet, and is so besotted with it that she even dresses it in tutus and treats it to manicure sessions and foot massages. Angela Lance bought Lilly the alligator as a tiny hatchling at just two and a half days old, when it was just a little bigger than a remote control.Lilly has now grown to four-and-a-half foot long. Lance says her neighbors are aware of Lilly’s existence and respect what she is doing so far.
