It took over an hour, but Toronto animal services were able to find, and capture a 3-foot Caiman, lurking in a catfish pond in High Park.

It's not clear how the animal got there, though most believe it was left their by owners who no longer wanted him.

The agile reptile will eventually end up as a zoo attraction, according to Toronto Animal Services.

Kyle Stadnyk posted a video to YouTube, showing an aminal in the water. He says he believes it's a caiman, a reptile native to tropical climates.

An animal services worker is in the pond today looking for the reptile.

    Relax, it's just Olivia Chow cooling off. That rubber human suit she wears must get really uncomfortable on hot summer days.

      @tanjo The reptile is like Rob Ford. He won't answer questions and he wants to choose the media you will say nothing to.

      But that is the nature of this slime like beast.

      @The reptile is I think he is more like Doug. Snaps at everything and he looks at you like you are his next prey.

    Some fun gator facts -

    An alligator can go through 3,000 teeth in a lifetime.
    An alligator has a heart with 4 chambers. Most reptiles have only 3.
    An alligator can be legally kept as a pet in Florida with a proper license and permit.
    The average lifespan of an alligator is 30-50yrs.

    I hate black people and jews.
