Jawless Florida alligator named Jawlene for fellow ‘treasure’ Dolly Parton

Rescuers who took in a jawless Florida alligator have given the bedraggled reptile a new, Dolly Parton-inspired name: Jawlene.

Gatorland, an 110-acre theme park near Orlando that rescues alligators, made the cheeky announcement earlier this week following numerous submissions. Jawlene is a nod to Parton’s famed 1973 song Jolene, during which she begs a romantic rival not to steal her partner.

Jawlene drew international attention earlier this month after she was spotted with the top half of her jaw missing. Eustacia Kanter said to People that she snapped a photo of the gator at a Sanford, Florida, park on 29 August.
