There are a number of pets that you would not expect someone in the UK to have, a pet alligator may be one of them.

A Freedom of Information request by ITV found that there are a number of 'dangerous and wild animals' living in the UK.

The list included a Mississippi Alligator living in someone's back garden in Winterbourne.

To have an animal that is classed as dangerous a license must be obtained from the local authority.

The ITV also reported that there are 16 dangerous snakes in Bristol, including Vipers.
