Lakeland woman allowed to keep 6-foot gator Rambo as pet

LAKELAND, Fla. — A Lakeland woman will be spending the holidays with her beloved pet after state officials ruled that she could keep her almost 6-foot alligator.

"As you see, he's like a little baby. This is his favorite spot. I'm his favorite mommy," Thorn said.

"He does not like outside noises. If he hears crickets at night, he freaks and stuff like that, so he lives in my house," Thorn said.

Thorn can no longer take Rambo to schools or preform in public with the reptile.
