According to the article it was a 4-foot, 4-year-old cayman alligator....!!!...A drug-sniffing dog became alert near the man's car. Inside, agents found 13 grams of marijuana. Then agents asked the man, whose name was not released, if he had anything else inside the car they should know about.
“The guy says, 'There's an alligator in there,''' Easterling said. “He says, 'He's in the suitcase there.' And when (the agent) opened the suitcase, sure enough, there was a cayman in there.''
