Spearman, TX -- A 10 foot alligator from the Texas Alligator Ranch in Spearman will be a main attraction at the Bass Pro Shops flagship store in Springfield, Missouri.
The gator will live in a new indoor swamp exhibit.
On Wednesday night, Alligator Ranch founder Dean Coates and a handful of volunteers helped load the ten foot gator into an SUV.
They gave him little wiggle room, securing him safely for the 7 hour drive.
After Coats drops off that alligator, he'll head to Louisiana, where he'll pick up another 10 foot gator, and then at a stop in Texas he'll pick up a 7 foot alligator.
Both will live at the ranch.
