A Sewer Gator is a monstrously large mutant alligator found living deep within urban sewer systems. It is theorized that Sewer Gators were smaller pet gators when they were younger that were "flushed" into the sewer systems by neglectful owners. A combination of fetid pollutants, human waste products, and possible illegal chemical dumping have mutated these originally harmless pets into gargantuan maneaters lurking in the depths under the city streets.

A Sewer Gator measures 25 feet to 40 feet in length from tip of snout to tip of tail with a height of between 7 to 10 feet. It normally feeds on whatever it can find in the sewers, though a Sewer Gator will come to the surface to feed if it becomes hungry enough. A motivated and hungry Sewer Gator can pop off manhole covers and lunge out at a victim, as well as drain grates and other access portals. Truly monstrous Sewer Gators have exploded from the street itself, landing with a thud on the pavement before devouring everything within reach. Once sated, the Sewer Gator will re-enter its subterranean lair. A sudden decrease in the homeless population could point to a possible Sewer Gator infestation.

Although Sewer Gators are normally found in urban sewer systems, it's also possible to find them lurking in remote swamps and bogs as well as some large fresh-water lakes.
