Ponchatoula family uses an alligator for the ‘gender reveal’

Ponchatoula, LA –  Most couples who host “gender reveal” parties use a cake.

Mike Kliebert announced the news with an alligator.

In a video posted on Facebook, Kliebert opens the jaws of an alligator and waits to be handed something about the size of a  bowling ball. As friends and family cheer him on, Kliebert puts the ball into the gator’s mouth and lets the beast chomp down.

In a split second, the gator’s jaws burst through the “ball” — which was actually a hollowed out watermelon.  And to the delight of the crowd, gobs of jello fly out of the gator’s mouth.  The jello is blue.

The baby will be a boy.

Kliebert, who goes by the title “T-Mike, the Gator King” is an alligator wrangler, trainer, and tour guide. You can learn more about his tours here.
