meet Gator Girl, part of the Mealy Monster land traveling sideshow.
When Gator girl was in her mama's belly her Mama came across a big Old Alligator. The alligator got just one little tiny bite, lucky for Gator girl's mama, she manged to escape. Maybe the Alligator let her go, knowing what it had done or maybe luck was on her side that day. Frantic she made it home and told her husband what had happened. He hunted down that Alligator and shot it dead. Needless to say, on the day she was born that Big old alligator got the last laugh.
