Alligator, or ...?

The alligator, which later turned out not to be an alligator, was listed as number 12 on the list of Central Park's most creepy stories and legends.

Once upon a time, a crocodile lived in the walls of Central Park, which called these walls its home. Back then, at that time, early reports suggested that the animal was an alligator. But as it turned out later, it was a Caiman, a native of South and Central America, but not new York. He was detained by a 25-year-old professional alligator wrestler from Florida – Tina Bailey. According to her suspicions, the Caiman was smuggled to new York, and then went out a little and released into the Park.
