Alligator or Chicken?

While working on categorization with a patient who has autism and very little verbal skills... We were putting manipulative objects into piles of animals, food, and transportation. I gave my patient a small alligator. He picked it up to examine it at eye level, twirled it a bit, and promptly placed it into his mouth and exclaimed (much to our amazement), "Mmmm, chicken!"
