This is likely a first for anyone. My name is Wendy and I am a zoologist with The Bronx Zoo. I own a 3 BR apt on 2nd and Grand and I am looking for someone to help a few hours a week with an alligator that is staying with me for the next 6 months and in return you get a great deal and a large BR. The room is 23 x 22 and is completely furnished with a king size bed, 50″ flat screen on wall TV and matching furniture. The unit is a 3 BR. I have one room, you have a room and the alligator has a room. The alligator is actually a cayman from Zimbabwe. Her name is Keomba and is 48 years old in adult years. She is here for a rehabilitation, she was attacked by younger crocs at the zoo in the early summer. Have no fear, Keomba is a gentle giant that is in all actuality very calm. I have all the required permits from the state to have her here. You would be asked for 30 minutes a day to feed her and check on her bandages while I am at work.

Keomba is in her own tank in 24 inches of water. Her teeth are removed while here so you have nothing to worry about with regards to being bit. Her teeth will be cosmetically reinserted upon her return to the zoo next year.

I seek a non smoking professional male / female 25 – 40. Please do not throw parties, use illicit drugs or make lots of noise. References will be checked. This is a serious offer and if you are looking for a great deal in Hoboken then this is for you. Those interested may email me to meet Keomba 1st to make sure you are comfortable with the situation. Thank you

Wasn’t there an ad last year of the same nature, except it was a gorilla?

Permit? Awesome I will pay for FidoRex’s dentures if the owner agrees to walk her down by Maxwell Park every evening!
