The Alligator in the Lake - Nature 114

We spotted a small alligator in the one of our neighborhood lake few days ago when we just walking around the lake.

We have seen small children playing in the backyards around the lake. We don't know whether their parents aware or not of an alligator nearby. We live not that far from this lake.

You might surprise with the size of alligators in our areas:
- the largest size could reach 14 feet (14.3 meter) with weight 500 pound (227 kg).
- the smaller size is about 7 feet (2.1 meters) with weight 250 pound (113 kg).

When talked to neighbors who live around or closer to the lake, they said there are actually two other larger alligators.

They have tried to catch alligator, but not success yet. Some suggested, may be time to get professional help.

They would call wildlife and fisheries or homeowners association to remove the alligators as soon as possible.

Have you seen the wild alligator in the nature?

  8. O jacaré é um animal muito perigoso, sem dúvida alguma. Já os vi de bem perto em Angola.
    Deixo os meus votos de uma feliz semana, e Feliz Natal!
    Beijinhos.

  10. When I lived in central Florida, we had alligators in our drainage ditches sometimes. We were always aware of the possibility so we used caution. Thank you so much for coming to visit me.

  13. Jacarés a conviverem com pessoas com crianças por perto pode dar mau resultado.

  15. Es verdaderamente preocupante que haya un caimán tan cerca de las casas donde habita la gente.

  19. We see them in swamps and preserves but haven't seen one in our neighborhood pond. I've heard that there was one that they captured and took off years ago. WHEW! They are scary!
