When you think of emotional support animals, you probably think of a dog or cat. Well, Joie Henney, a 65-year-old man from Pennsylvania, is here to prove that any animal can be an emotional support animal, including his pet alligator, Wally.

Henney says his emotional support alligator has helped him get through some incredibly difficult times in his life, including the deaths of three close friends and the depression that followed. Henney's doctor even agrees that his relationship with Wally is therapeutic and has even approved their companionship as an alternative way to treat Henney's depression.

According to philly.com, Wally isn't the only alligator in Henney's home, either. He also rescued a smaller alligator, Scrappy, who shares 300-gallon plastic pond with Wally. The alligators enjoy chicken wings and watching tv shows, like Gator Boys and Swamp People.

Despite their cold-blood, Henney only feels warmhearted towards his alligators. Wally, who turns 4 this year, is as gentle as they come. According Yahoo Lifestyle, he's "just like a dog" and wants to be "loved and petted."

What do you think: would you ever have an alligator as emotional support animal or is that just taking it too far. Let us know in the comments!
