MEET Wally – the 5ft, 60lb, federally-licensed emotional support alligator. Owned by Joie Henney, from Pennsylvania, Joie’s house boasts a variety of reptiles, ranging from bearded dragons to ball pythons. The reptile that steals the show, however, is the four-year-old Wally, who has a special place in Joie’s heart. Joie told Truly: “He’s far from a typical alligator, he loves cuddling and he loves giving kisses”. As well as having full run of the house, Wally is regularly taken out for walks to parks, malls and even restaurants.

    One of my friends brought their pet anaconda to school during graduation and I let him slither around my arm and he was so sweet I could see that snake being an emotional support animal as well.

    I seriously need one of those wally emotional support gator t shirts

  4. Aquarius Freewater on January 22, 2023 at 2:43 am

    I had to watch to the end. They are invited to most of the places Wally goes to. Thank goodness. We don’t need anyone else lolling about with apex predators in tow.

    Wally seems like a pretty gud alligator, I’d definitely watch some TV with him

    once a gator descovers human food like the other one that refuses meat and only wants chips ahoy and pizza. once you show a intelligent animal a cozy life they ain’t gonna want to bite the hand that feeds it. unless you want a goose or geese.
    most geese prefer sticking with 1 human.
    they will attack and refuse any food given if it isn’t the owner. guard geese replaced dogs in some jails because the inmates keep feeding the dogs to befriend and shut them up. guard geese don’t care about food and will make a racket and got enough strength to take your pants and shirt off.

    Imagínense tener un gator cerca a tu cuello ..

  8. Xaver Bishop on January 22, 2023 at 2:45 am

    What happens when Wally gets over ten foot long?

  9. Роман Кощеков on January 22, 2023 at 2:47 am

    A long time ago, since the beginning of time, in a dense forest lived a man who was friends with all the animals of the forest. At that time there were no winters on the planet, so all the joys of summer were always in everyday life. Animals were different from different parts of the planet, the benefit of the entire planet was covered by the primordial forest.
    All the animals were happy to communicate with humans, and every day was filled with joy and fun. But, the time came when man became sad. There were no visible reasons for sadness and sorrow, and the animals didn’t know how to help their friend…They all gathered on the big forest glade in front of the man and were silently near him.
    Suddenly the silence of the forest was broken by the beautiful singing of birds. All present at once directed their eyes to the side from which the beautiful melody was coming: a girl was coming out of the forest. The beauty of her soul was much more beautiful than birds’ melodies and at the same time it was a part of general beauty of the surrounding world.
    The sadness and sorrow of the man touched her soul … The man began to say: I love you all very much. With each of you I like to play, I love to stroke you, caress you and just be near. But now I am saddened by the fact that when I play with one I leave the other unattended. I dream of feeling love all the time to give it to all of you.
    The woman approached the man and bound him in her arms. The man’s hands touched her waist, breasts, and then his hands went to her face, and at the same moment their lips joined in a long kiss.
    Their planet was bypassed by wars, so the continents were one big continent and weightlessness was on the surface…The joyful cry of a man: I will unite you all into one whole ! living and eternal ! Our love will create planets…A misty haze appeared over the forest clearing and, at the same hour, all the animals hovered in the air, and then slowly began to rise up.
    Thus was born the planetary body of the man-man. Every creature for a pair, in the image and likeness of the human body all the animals gathered into one human-like body. Slowly, but with incredible beauty of all the female individuals gathered a female planetary body. They were holding hands with the planetary body of a man and the planetary body of a woman, they had eternal and imperishable love for each other in front of them….

  14. Jay Manilla on January 22, 2023 at 2:52 am

    some people can tame animals very very well.

  15. James Bit on January 22, 2023 at 2:56 am

    That is probably the happiest gator ever

  16. Glass of Water on January 22, 2023 at 2:56 am

    this guy do likes rough skinned dogs

  17. Nicolette Soulia Writes to Save on Therapy Bills on January 22, 2023 at 2:56 am

    While this animal is certainly beautiful, and it’s amazing that he does hold his calm temperament so well with humans, I do very much find it irresponsible and dangerous to be having him out in public and climbed on by toddlers without even mouth restraints. We know that from the typical pets (dogs, cats, etc.) that any animal, even the traditionally docile ones can experience negative stresses that cause them to lash out and hurt people, so the idea that someone thinks a wild gator is just so special that he’ll never do that? That’s asking for trouble. Should children be curious and learn about reptiles? Absolutely. Should they be taught a distorted view of them as not dangerous creatures to respect from a safe distance? Nope. Even if Wally himself truly is this “safe,” that’s an anomaly, not the norm, and the last thing anyone wants is for their seven year old to be dragged off by a gator for breakfast one day while fishing because it didn’t see the danger approaching after cuddling one two years prior. I’m sorry, but there is so much NOPE in this story.

  18. YukiChan 07 on January 22, 2023 at 2:58 am

    Wow .. , wally is the most gentle and kind alligator ive ever know… I wish wally will have kids and its kids will also have the same traits as wally

    Tick tock, it’s just a matter of time before…

  21. MMA Reviewer. on January 22, 2023 at 3:04 am

  22. Black Lavender on January 22, 2023 at 3:06 am

    What if the dangerous wild animals-that allow people to do this to them- are our equivalent to slow or mentally deficient humans. They holding this gator like a baby

    U like me Belle

  25. Tyrannomaximus on January 22, 2023 at 3:07 am

    Alligators arn’t as agressive as a crocs so I guess Wally is safe.

  26. Daniel Pauley on January 22, 2023 at 3:09 am

    Imagine if people treated wild animals as wild animals instead of trying to personify and tame every living thing under the Sun? Even if it’s a rescue, keep it as wild as possible.

    Imagine taking a man’s best friend for 40k smh

  29. Michael Lee on January 22, 2023 at 3:12 am

    Did not know they can be this tame. Makes me feel sorry to see them shot on other shows.

  30. Charles GUAY on January 22, 2023 at 3:12 am

    I AM totally afraid of snakes and gators, let me rephrase that I’m terrified of both. I see even a small snake and scream like a girl. As for gators can’t even watch them on tv or you tube, without having nightmares about them. I think I would like the oppertunity to meet Wally maybe just maybe he could get me over my fears. Maybe someday.

  31. Diane Smith on January 22, 2023 at 3:13 am

    This is nuts. They shouldn’t let it around children. I predict something bad.

  32. James Hunt on January 22, 2023 at 3:16 am

    Jesus Christ..

  33. Kaori on January 22, 2023 at 3:17 am

    It’s a great story and Wally is definitely cute, but I feel that he is a bit mistreated. He get’s purposefully stressed with all the people around him on birthday parties or restaurants, as well as literally sitting children on his back and his movement gets restricted when he wants to move (Wally tried to walk away repeatedly and he just put him closer again and kept him from walking off). I wouldn’t be able to tell how annoying or stressful it really is for Wally, but it really didn’t seem like proper handling in my eyes.

  34. oknu on January 22, 2023 at 3:17 am

    Can you show me more with you and Wally

  35. Scott Bivins on January 22, 2023 at 3:20 am

  39. TE Gaming & Other on January 22, 2023 at 3:22 am

    He is now classified as an American version of an Australian man.

  40. Mourning Coffee on January 22, 2023 at 3:22 am

    These gators are adorable, but I doubt you could do this with crocs.

  41. darkexe on January 22, 2023 at 3:22 am
