PADRE ISLAND, Texas — That's not something you see everyday.
An alligator apparently made the journey from Louisiana to Malaquite Beach. Officials at the Padre Island National Seashore (PINS) found the gator Monday.
PINS posted to Facebook that the young American alligator had tags on its rear feet that indicated it came all the way from Louisiana.
The gator was taken to a nearby rehabilitation facility to "recover from its long journey."
