Top Chef Houston related question

I know this doesn’t really relate to Houston dining, but after the last episode of Top Chef I was wondering, can you really buy a whole aligator at Whole Foods in Houston? If so, how much would it cost?

I, uh, would presume it was a special order??? I’m not into these competition shows so I haven’t been watching.

There are places that special in wild game fare and Cajun (and other) places that offer alligator dishes. There was a new BBQ place opened a few years back, Pinkerton’s. The proprietor, probably just to attract attention, showed up at a bbq cookoff with a whole, skinned, smoked gator, mouth propped open. It wasn’t an adult sized one.

I’ll pass.
