A male alligator called Kanye was removed from a lagoon at a New South Wales zoo after showing hostility towards other alligators and its keepers.The Australian Reptile Park in Somersby said “bad boy” Kanye was “charging keepers” and “displaying aggressive behaviour towards the other 54 alligators during this mating season”.The zoo said Kanye would be isolated for a “short while to cool down.”Australian Reptile Park Director Tim Faulkner said the 400kg and almost 4 metre-long alligator "has come out of hibernation explosive, therefore, a danger to himself, to the other alligators and staff.”“Kanye has made the other alligators very tense. He’s a young bloke, full of testosterone and he’s raising havoc right now, so the best thing to do is to send him to the naughty corner for some quiet time out. American alligators have one of the strongest jaw pressures of any animal and one bite can be life-threatening, so our amazing team had to take extreme care during the removal,” he said.In footage shared by the zoo, a team of keepers can be seen removing the alligator from the lagoon and releasing him into an isolation area.
