Just days after an orange alligator was spotted in South Carolina,  another one was spotted in North Carolina. 

The second orange gator was seen in Calabash, N.C., about 130 miles from where the first was found. The South Carolina gator was dubbed the "Trump-a-gator" by locals, The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports. The North Carolina gator's nickname, "Donny," also seems to be a dig at President Trump.

Some were quick to politicize the discovery of the gator.

This was true on both sides of the aisle.

Photos show the 4- to 5-foot-long alligator on the banks of a retention pond at the Tanner Plantation neighborhood. Jay Butfiloski with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources says the color may come from where the animal spent the winter, perhaps in a rusty steel culvert pipe. Experts say the alligator will shed its skin and probably return to a normal shade soon. (Stephen Tatum via AP)

Jay Butfiloski with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources says the color may come from where the gator spent the winter, perhaps in a rusty steel culvert pipe. The gators will likely return to a normal color after shedding their skin.
