(WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The Chicago alligator known as "Chance the Snapper" has his own bachelor pad at a Florida zoo.

The creature that was the subject of a weeklong hunt at Humboldt Park Lagoon arrived at St. Augustine Alligator Farm and was released Thursday in a livestreamed event. Chance is expected to be quarantined for up to 90 days before he's introduced to other alligators, an official said in the livestream video.
