Kansas is beginning to feel a lot like Florida!

There have been two gator sightings in one week in Kansas. One was seen crossing a Basehor, Kansas street earlier this week

And another reptile was found in Olathe on Monday.

The Olathe Police Department and Animal Control said a small gator was found under a vehicle in Olathe on Monday. What was it doing there? Well that is the unanswered question. 

The department said the critter “has been hanging out this week,” but will be “heading to a new home on Monday with a reptile rescue in Manhattan, as gators are not allowed to reside in Olathe.”

The find has many residents wondering if their might be a momma gator lurking around somewhere in town.
