PHOTO: Meet Louis Delmas' former gator Mojo
Lions safety Louis Delmas has a new roomate, which means he's parting ways with his alligator Mojo.
There's something about having a pet that requires you to buy other pets as food.
A quick backstory. Five years ago, former Lions linebacker Ernie Sims gave Delmas (a huge reptile fan himself) a gator egg. Well, as the circle of life tells us, gator eggs grow up to become live gators, living in one's basement tank, living off a two-giant-rat-a-day diet.
The gator, named Mojo, is now 6 feet long and as Delmas told MLive.com, "ate my refrigerator dry."
Circle. Life. Of.

But then came Ogletree, the New York kid who doesn't want to live with a live gator and well, Delmas even admitted that keeping a 6-foot gator in the house wasn't good for all parties, gator included, so the safety passed Mojo to the Allen Park Critter Shop. From there, Mojo could become a member of the Detroit Zoo.
