Another Alligator Caught House Climbing

Tampa Tribune:

A 6- to 7-foot alligator drew a small crowd of incredulous onlookers Thursday evening in the Morningside neighborhood in Meadow Pointe.

As the reptile attempted to climb the stucco wall of a house, near several electrical boxes, a woman across the street said, “Oh my God.”

Pasco County sheriff’s Deputy Todd Koenig said his agency was called to a house on Morning Mist Drive about 6:15 p.m.

Compare this photo taken at Hilton Head in 2006.

What exactly do these uppity reptiles think they’re doing? Did they lean on trees in order to stand vertically before people came along and built houses, do you suppose?

his playing a game


lol! i would be sooooooo scared if i looked outta my window and i saw an alligator!!!!


“Dear, I think someone’s at the door.”


perhaps he was trying to pull a tom cruise on mission impossible II by attepting to scale the wall?

or maybe he was trained by a thief to open doors, who knows.

There are safer ways to make your house offbeat…

[…] Just a little something for the weekend. Seriously folks; alligator, not the smart offbeat way to go. See another pic. […]

I’m sure that stucco is great for a belly “scritch” (damn these stubby legs! I got an itch I can’t reach!)
