Deputies with the Broward Sheriff's Office were called to remove a gator hanging out on the front porch of a home in Parkland, Florida.
According to a post on Facebook
from BSO, a neighbor spotted the gator and notified authorities, as well as the homeowners. A trapper was then called to "relocate
" the gator.
It's worth noting that we are currently in the midst of mating season for Florida alligators, so it's not unusual to find these reptiles in unexpected places, like a front porch or a pool.
Females typically lay between 36-42 eggs between June and July, says the FWC
. Also, males will travel to some pretty far off places just to "get it in."
Basically, you should just play it safe and expect gators wherever you go.
