DETROIT (AP) — New Ford CEO Mark Fields will get a pay package worth $5.25 million this year as he takes over for the retiring Alan Mulally.

But he'll get stock options that could drive that figure much higher. And the company will restore his use of a corporate jet to travel back and forth from his home near Miami.

Ford revealed Fields' compensation Wednesday in a regulatory filing.

He'll get a $1.75 million base salary, plus $3.5 million in incentive compensation. And the company is offering him options to buy more than 710,000 shares of stock at Tuesday's closing price of $17.21 per share.

Fields took over for Mulally on Tuesday. Even with the options, Fields has a long way to go to match Mulally's package of $23.2 million last year.

Should you be allowed to own exotic, potentially dangerous animals?

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) removed seven reptiles from an unlicensed man last week. FWC investigators charged Nick Mitchell with unlawful possession of seven venomous reptiles and several other violations related to the care, keeping and labeling of his animals. The animals, including a gila monster, black monocled cobra, rhino viper, dusky pygmy rattlesnake, black neck spitting cobra and two banded cobras, were seized and placed at a local licensed facility.
