There are emotional support dogs, emotional support horses but emotional support alligators? Well we know of at least one. His name is Wally and he lives in York, Pennsylvania.
Wally is a seven year old American Alligator and for some reason he has not bitten or attacked anyone. In fact quite the opposite. Wally is known for cuddling, giving kisses and making people smile. Wally is not muzzled and sometimes even goes on walks.
Wally is very popular on TikTok these days racking up millions of views for his unique and out of character skills. Out of character for an alligator anyway. He is considered to be domesticated but between you and me, I don’t know if I could completely trust that he would never bite. But that’s just me.
Wally is so popular that he is up for the honor of America’s favorite pet. To learn more about Wally check out this feature on him on 6ABC.
