Why did the alligator try cross the road?

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.
