A mini deck (supplied), is shown and shuffled, then a card is selected and returned to the deck. While the spectator mixes the cards, the performer brings out his 'pet alligator,' which he claims can do a card trick. A small paper bag is opened and the performer lifts a chain, on the end of which is an alligator clip. The mixed deck is dribbled into the bag, then gator is lowered in. After only a few seconds of sniffing, gator is raised out of the bag and there is a card in its mouth! Unfortunately, it is the wrong card! The performer asks the spectator to concentrate harder as he lowers gator back into the bag. After only a second or two, gator comes out of the bag, this time with the correct card.
