Maybe to get a new girlfriend.
An alligator that disappeared from a Nature Center in Arkansas was found as he waited to cross a road near the center's entrance.
According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the gator may have tried to leave to find a mate.
The Savannah River Ecology Laboratory at the University of Georgia says alligator courtship starts in April and breeding season extends into May.
A center employee says the alligator did the same thing last year.
