Domestigator

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dom esti gay tor

Sentence: Crikey, but the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, was a true domestigator. He turned every animal he met into a pet. He put the Pen in Penguin, the M'am in Mamba and the Con in Anaconda. He was a true communigator and an edugator. He found out the hard way that the Pole Cat was not really a cat and he looked out for the wilferal wildlife. Sadly, but ironically, he met his Cregator after having a stinging ray put a hole in his heart. Maybe it was squid pro quo (a favor for a favor) but he never seemed to have reptile dysfunction before that fateful day!

Etymology: domesticate ( make fit for cultivation, domestic life, and service to humans;overcome the wildness of; make docile and tractable) & Gator (nickname for an alligator, either of two amphibious reptiles related to crocodiles but with with shorter broader snouts)
