He came to an Arizona rehabilitation center without a tail. He likely lost it to the bite of another gator.

Losing a tail can be very tricky and dangerous for alligators because without it.. "Mr. Stubbs" could have drowned in his pond.

But thanks to a team of researchers and doctors, Mr. Stubbs can move like a normal alligator now that he has a prosthetic tail.

It took more than a year to develop.
