California Sheriff's Deputies busted a guy this week with 34 pounds of marijuana, but they couldn't seize it immediately because it was guarded by a GATOR!

The guy says he bought 'Mr. Teeth,' the gator, back in 96, "to commemorate the death of TUPAC SHAKUR."

Which makes no sense to me, not exactly sure how buying a marijuana-guarding alligator and naming him Mr. Teeth honors Tupac, but who am I to judge?

According to the AP the alligator was 5 Feet Long!

Where the heck do you keep an animal like that?

The man was arrested & Mr. Teeth has been taken to the Oakland Zoo where he's being treated for some serious health problems.
