Muja The Alligator Still Alive In His 80s At Belgrade Zoo


American alligator Muja is believed to be the oldest of his kind in captivity. Reuters reports that he is good health with a hearty appetite for his age. Muja, now in his 80s, arrived at Belgrade Zoo on the eve of the Second World War, in August 1937. All his official documentation was lost in a carpet bombing of the Serbian capital by the Allies in 1944. Muja’s only health issue has been gangrene, which led to the amputation of his front right claw.
