Gators inside KSC Building

Alligator Captured Inside NASA KSC Building (photos)

Editor's note: From Hi Keith, I'd suggest that you call NASA public affairs to confirm this, but somewhere between KSC and JSC, the location of these photos apparently got promoted. I'm told that they were taken on May 14, at a receiving warehouse in the KSC industrial area, several miles south of the VAB. Gator encounters are a common occurrence here, given that we're situated in the middle of a wildlife refuge. Still, it's rare for them to venture inside.

Editor's note: I just got this email (forwarded several times) originating from just after 3:00 pm today. The text survived forwarding, but the interesting part i.e. the image - did not (hint hint).

"They found this 8ft gator walking in the VAB high bay next door to the LCC and made his way inside to the bathroom last night."

Editor's update: Here's one photo from (I am told there are many more floating around from this email). Here's another photo
