En el zoológico, Bombon se encontró con un cocodrilo.


Explanation:
If the meaning of "meet", is:
-that he find or came face to face with the alligator, use the previous answer.
-that he meet the alligator for the firts time, like when you are introduced to someone, use "En el zoológico, Bombon conoció a un cocodrilo."

If "Bombon" means "bon-bon", I mean, a sweet, in spanish it's "Bombón". If you want to keep the name as in english don't put the dash.

Consider this note for all the other answers I gave you.

If you have doubts, write to me.
