Its gator mating season and that means that gator maters, as I’m calling them, are heading out of their normal spots looking for love. Like this 10 foot friend who was found under a car in a Tampa apartment complex parking lot. Now we all know living in Florida means that gators go where they want when they want and we all learn to live around them. But during mating season they will travel outside of their usual stomping grounds to find some frisky friends. So keep your head on a swivel so you’re not surprised by a randy reptile, no matter what part of Florida you’re in.
And if you haven’t seen how extreme gator love can be, check out this video from Gordon Silver in his Lakewood Ranch backyard of two gators, um...frolicking?
