Mr. Teeth, Caiman Owned by Suspected Weed-Dealer/Moron, Dies in Oakland Zoo Custody

Mr. Teeth, a five-foot-long dwarf caiman owned by Castro Valley resident and suspected weed dealer Assif Mayar, has died in the custody of the Oakland Zoo.

Alameda County sheriff’s deputies checking on the parolee Mayar Tuesday found the caiman — essentially an alligator, in layperson’s terms — in a plexiglass box in Mayar’s bedroom. The Castro Valley house contained about 34 pounds of marijuana, leading to numerous reports that Mr. Teeth was somehow guarding the weed from his small plexiglass box. Vets at the Oakland Zoo said 16 year-old Mr. Teeth was very sick when deputies found him, and he died Wednesday night.
