Legend says that alligators live in New York City’s sewers: Long ago New Yorkers traveling to Florida purchased baby alligators, but after returning home they discovered that alligators make poor pets. Most died, but some were tossed into toilets and storm drains alive. The alligators liked the sewers. They live there today and every once in a while, they gobble somebody up.
