GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WSVN) — An alligator got a medical checkup after he wasn’t feeling well.
Brooke, the 376-pound gator, was seen by the University of Florida’s Zoological Medicine service team after he started head-rolling in the lagoon where he lives earlier this week.
After making his trip from St. Augustine Alligator Farm to Gainesville, Brooke got a full workup, including a blood draw and CT scan.
Doctors determined he had an ear infection. Brooke is now back at his zoo recovering.
