You know you’ve made it when you get your own bobblehead.

And Chance the Snapper, the alligator that took up residence at the Humboldt Park lagoon for at least a week before being caught early Tuesday, has definitely made it.

Fans of the summer saga that included local gator expert “Alligator Bob” and professional alligator wrangler Frank Robb can commemorate the moment with a Chance the Snapper bobblehead.

The bobblehead, made available by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, costs $25 and is available for preorder, with shipment expected in October 2019. The alligator’s head and tail will both bobble.

The Bobblehead Hall of Fame said there are no plans for “Alligator Bob” or Frank Robb bobbleheads, but that could change depending on how the Chance the Snapper bobblehead does.
