Giant three-metre alligator found hiding beneath car in US

ANIMALS

Love is in the air if you’re an alligator or crocodile. And that means if you’re in the US, everyone else has to be on the lookout for amorous alligators and frisky crocs who are more active and visible this time of year and potentially more aggressive.
That may be why the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office was called about a giant gator discovered under a parked car at an apartment complex in Tampa on March 31.
The caller advised there was a pond nearby, but this was no small gator. It was more than three meters long.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) dispatched a contracted nuisance alligator trapper to transfer the alligator to an alligator farm.
The alligator’s capture was recorded on a deputy’s body camera.
The gator was not harmed and fortunately, no one was injured.
Alligators begin to court in April in the US but mating runs May through June according to the FWC.
It’s likely more alligators will be seen in lakes, rivers, and habitats where they live and males will also move over land during this time of year, from one body of water to another.
Anyone who spots an alligator where it doesn’t belong should remember to keep a safe distance. FWC says an alligator can be considered a nuisance if it is more than one and a half meters in length and could be a threat to people, pets, or property.
