Alligator seized after living in Texas home for over 20 years 

An alligator was seized from a Texas home after living there for 20 years.

The reptile was over 7 feet long and weighed around 200 pounds.

It was found in a "small, dark room" with poor living conditions.

The owner of the home did not have a permit to keep the alligator.

The alligator was handed over to wildlife authorities.

The authorities plan to relocate the alligator to a sanctuary.

The alligator's health will be evaluated before it is moved.

Keeping wild animals as pets is illegal and dangerous for both humans and animals.

It is important to report such incidents to the authorities to ensure animal welfare.
