The UF College of Veterinary Medicine says a 600-Ib alligator from Saint Augustine Gator Farm is recovering at the hospital.

The school tweeted the gator named Bob underwent some tests which revealed his right leg showed evidence of lameness.

The school says he is responsive to zoo staff, on pain medication, and will soon start antibiotic therapy.
