A 13 foot alligator captured in Hilton Head, South Carolina was a living, breathing sporting goods store. Once captured, authorities got an incite into the reptile's diet...
Trappers who opened the gator's stomach found 53 fishing lures, a half-pound of lead sinkers, a soccer ball, two baseballs, one tennis ball and two other balls that were unidentifiable because they had been partially digested. They also found a 4-foot gator.
That discovery, plus other meals that included two turtles, a beer can and 48 rocks suggest the 13-foot gator ate just about anything, said Mark Carinus, who assists Critter Management with trapping and harvesting nuisance gators.
