Robert Pattinson will be posing with an alligator on the April 2011 cover of Vanity Fair.

First elephants, now alligators?

The legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz took the photographs of RPatz for the magazine’s cover story, which is tied to the release of the upcoming film Water for Elephants.

Reese Witherspoon spoke very highly of her co-star, calling him “sweet” and “hot”.  No kidding!

I’m positive the photos will be breathtaking, not only because they are of the vampire hunk but because Leibovitz has taken them.

According to Gossip Cop, Pattinson’s alligator friend is a nod to the Louisiana set of Twilight: Breaking Dawn.

Sources also told the website that Pattinson does not discuss his relationship with Kristen Stewart, and that he comes across as a genuinely good guy and reluctant star.

Vanity Fair will be on newsstands on March 3.
