No, all the rain over the past 5 days didn't unearth an alligator habitat in DC. This guy was found in or near someone's house in SE. DC Animal Control is reminding residents, alligators are not legal pets in The District... in case you were thinking of getting one for your birthday ;)

7D Officers came in contact with a 4-foot alligator while on patrol last night! DC Animal Control will be working to have him relocated to a safe habitat.
Also, remember that alligators should not be considered house pets! pic.twitter.com/b89xF2Xp4h
