Katie Fick, of Chicago, holds 'Tiny Turbo,' a pet alligator belonging to Mike Sturgill, not pictured, at Sturgill's 'Hold & Hug an Alligator Exhibit' along U.S. 41 in eastern Collier County on Tuesday afternoon. Sturgill and his pet alligators have been a popular stop for tourists in eastern Collier County for the past several years. Now Sturgill wants to bring his business to Tin City in downtown Naples, and is waiting for the city's planning board recommendation to City Council following their meeting scheduled for Wednesday.
