Happy update on alligator from Chicago, Chance the Snapper

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla — The famous Chicago alligator, Chance the Snapper, got a blast from the past visit at the St. Augustine Alligator farm and Zoological Park.

Frank “Alligator” Robb was visiting the zoo in September and checking up on his favorite alligator, Chance from Chicago.

Chance is living his best life in a large enclosure with a variety of alligators, crocodiles, and caiman.

The pool Chance now calls home is attached to a popular guest spot, the porch of the Anastasia Island Conservation Center, where guests can relax in our rocking chairs and toss crocodilian pellets into pool.

Chance is the round-faced American Alligator, waiting for someone to toss him a handful of pellets. (The animal above him in the photo is a crocodile.)
