Believe it or not, the zookeeper introduced the exotic duo saying: “They are my pet gators. They love their chin scratches.” The two reptiles were seen extending their heads outside their aquatic arena, interacting with their keeper. As she simultaneously continues to caress their lower jaw, she is seen quickly withdrawing one hand when the second gator makes a quick move.

“Definitely make terrible pets 😂 but they’re still cute though 🤷‍♀️,” the caption read for the video shared by US-based Reptile Zoo, which is home to over 100 exotic species of reptiles and amphibians.

People on social media were shocked and astonished at the same time. While many asked the zookeeper to be careful, netizens said that she is a professional and others should never dare to do this. But it also left many delighted online who were amused to see the alligators, who looked like were enjoying it like any other pets.
