Most people settle for a simple cat or lovable dog as their pet of choice. But one Japanese man has taken a different route and adopted a giant 6ft 8in, 46kg caiman. Nobumitsu Murabayashi, 65,  is regularly seen strolling down the roads of Kure City in Hiroshima, Japan with his unlikely pet. The gentle giant lives with Mr Murabayashi and his wife where he roams freely in their home. Amazingly, he purchased the alligator-like animal as a baby 34 years ago from an exotic animal festival. He was given permission from the city’s government to keep the unusual pet, he imaginatively calls Caiman, at home. e said: ‘I never thought he would grow this big. It has been 34 years since I got him. I try to communicate with him through actions such as brushing his teeth, etc.’ Mr Murabayashi admits his long suffering wife isn’t necessarily a big fan of Caiman.
