Remember when all anyone in Illinois cared about was the alligator found in the Humboldt Park lagoon?

I was full on OBSESSED with this thing. I followed the story from start to finish and then some. And I'm so happy that I get to give a little update on Chicago legend Chance The Snapper.

Last summer after Chance was caught by Frank Robb AKA Alligator Robb, he was transferred to St. Augustine Alligator Farm in St. Augustine, Florida. Since then he's done nothing but thrive, oh and grow six inches and gain some weight. Block Club Chicago Details -

Chance is no longer shy. In fact, it only took him a couple of weeks to warm up to people, Robb said. Now he’s “super active.”

“When he first got there, he was very, very, very shy. You could tell he had never been around people,” Robb said. “Once he got used to people, holy moly. I got a little worried wearing flip flops. He’ll trim your toenails for you. He comes right up to you. He’ll put his chin on the bank right beside you.”

Robb has spent the last year with Chance at the farm, but he's also spent a lot of time in Chicago. The farm even did an update with the two a couple months back -

I'll end with this - Chance the Snapper and Robb are clearly buddies for life as he details -

“Me and that little guy are connected forever,” Robb said of Chance. “I’ll always make sure he’s safe. He isn’t going anywhere. He’ll never have any worries.”

My heart is happy knowing Chance and Robb are still together.
