Caiman Gator watch *

On Day 5 of the Great Caiman Hunt in Harbor City, experts fly in (from Colorado, not South America) and a woman tells the Breeze that she reported a sighting a month ago. Channel 2 has taken to calling the elusive creature a "giant caiman."

* Darwin was right: The caiman is now an alligator, the Times website says.
