Louisiana gator swaps swamp life for Texas beach getaway

This May 24, 2021 photo provided by the National Park Service shows a young alligator traced to the Louisiana bayous on Padre Island beach in South Texas. Officials at Padre Island National Seashore said in a Facebook post that the gator showed up Monday, May 24, 2021, on Malaquite Beach, about 25 miles southeast of Corpus Christi. National Park Service rangers found it and checked its tail notch and tags on its rear feet to determine it had come from Louisiana. (K Rogers/National Park Service via AP)
