A Florida woman has won a battle which will allow her to keep her pet alligator. An alligator which wears a jacket, rides an ATV and looks a lot like Diddy Kong Racing’s Krunch.


The alligator, which is named Rambo, was the focus of a disagreement between its owner, Mary Thorn, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which argued that the animal needed more space to roam than its domestic situation allowed.

As ABC reports a compromise has been reached, though, which means Thorn gets to keep Rambo, with the stipulation that she can’t show him off in public like she has been, wearing his sunglasses and badass jackets and sitting on ATVs.
