With obesity rates soaring here in the United States (about 35.7%) among humans, I decided to do some research to see if this has become a problem for other species as well. From my research, I have concluded that it is affecting other species as well. Case in point: in Mississippi, a man named Delco Turner of Glucksstadt captured an alligator who (or was--I'm not sure if he is still alive), 13 feet, 6.5 inches long, and weighed in at 741.5 pounds. During the week before, there were 2 alligators caught who set size records. I think that the big problem, like with the humans is probably "fast food" In the case of the "gators" my guess is that the gators aren't getting enough "fast food" so they aren't getting enough exercise and are putting on more weight. If you run into a super large gator, I would suggest you not make any weight loss suggestions because I suspect the gators don't appreciate being called "obese" or even "fat". I've found it wise not to make an alligator mad since their teeth are actually larger than mine.
It is also entirely possible that they are related to the famous alligator, George, in Florida who used to own all those tourist trap souvenir places. You know George makes a lot of money from those stores, and he probably is financing expensive diets for his family.
