There are certain friendships in the world which don't require the human measurements of relationship standards. They exist and they do so proudly. One such friendship is of Thorns and Rambo who have been together for 11 years. Rambo is 6 feet tall and weighs 125- pounds. He lives with Thorns at her home in Lakeland, Florida.
Read more about their friendship below.
Not only is he potty trained but he also understands sign language, rides a motorcycle and has his own room.
"He's like my son. He's my family," says Thorns. "He's not a normal gator. He has never been a normal gator."
"He watches TV on top of my dogs," Thorn added further. "People get along with him, kids love him. Brand new babies have sat with him to do pictures."
"Everyone will tell you that I treat that animal like a baby," she tells proudly. "He doesn't do anything a normal gator does."
He's 11-year-old and too big to live with her according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
The authorities may allow him to live with her as she has him before the 2.5 acre was implemented.
