Orange alligator appears in SC neighborhood pondBy Sheila Mcguire Feb 11, 2017
SC has plenty of alligators, but one has the town talking.
An orange alligator in SC is being called the "Trumpagator" after being spotted at a pond in Hanahan, located near Charleston.
Because the neighborhood where the orange gator hangs out is called Tanner Plantation, people posting on the area's Facebook page have had fun with the joke that the color comes from too much self-tanning lotion.
"I have no doubt that animal is stained somehow, "Vliet said".
The approximately 4-foot-long rust-colored gator lives in a pond near a plantation in Hanahan, WCSC reports.
Herpetologist Josh Zalabak offered one possible explanation for the unusual coloring of the reptile.

Six charged over Australia's largest ever cocaine haul
The cocaine could have resulted in 1.4 million street deals, they added, without providing details of the latest seizure. A fourth man was arrested in Sydney for his alleged involvement in the conspiracy to import the cocaine, police said.
It's unclear why the gator has the odd, Doritos-like color, although one expert speculated its non-natural color could be due to an "environmental factor", like a pollutant or algae.
In 2011, an orange alligator reportedly appeared in Venice, Florida, and was labelled the first of its kind in the world.
Jay Butfiloski of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources says the gator likely spent the winter in a rusty pipe, which probably caused his skin to change color.
As you can see, this gator isn't your typical reptile.
"Representin' that Clemson National Championship", someone else exclaimed.
