In Kure City, Hiroshima, Japan, lives Mr. Nobumitsu Murabayashi, a 65 year old man who has been living with an alligator for 34 years. The alligator’s name is Caiman, and it is a male spectacled caiman. He bought the baby alligator at a festival without thinking too much about it, and now it’s grown into a hefty 2.1 meters and 46 kilograms. Though Mr. Murabayashi keeps a massive tub of water in front of his house for Caiman, he roams freely, spending a lot of his time in the tatami room, or sometimes the bathroom. Because of this, he has to have the tatami renewed once a year, and the sliding paper doors are full of holes. Despite that, Mr. Murabayashi cares for Caiman like his own son, and when he has time he takes him for walks in the city. Don’t worry, he has permission from the city government! He’s been featured in TV shows before, and many people know about him, but still, when people see the huge alligator walking down the street, even the locals stop and stare at him closely. With his children all grown up and independent, Mr. Murabayashi now showers Caiman with all of his attention. Caiman, who is expected to live another 20 to 30 years, has become the joy of Mr. Murabayashi’s life.
