Florida video footage of an alligator fight in front of her front door
Florida resident Susan Geschel drank coffee at about 6:45 a.m. on Tuesday, June 2, when she heard a knock on the door. It turned out that in front of the door of her house in Fort Myers, two alligators were fighting about 7 feet long (more than 2 meters), writes News-Press.
According to Geshel, one of the alligators pressed his head against the glass door. The other was at a distance with an open mouth. After a moment, one of the alligators squeezed the jaws on the body of the second and pressed it against the wall.
“They are fighting!” Geshel said to her husband.
She captured this moment in the video and posted it in Facebook.
According to the woman, alligators were in her yard for about 20 minutes, after which they left. One of the alligators crossed the street in the direction of the neighboring house. Where did the other, she did not see.
“They made a mess at the front door,” Geshel said.
After living in Fort Myers for 15 years, Geshel first saw alligators near her home.
According to Melody Kilborn, a spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, two adult male alligators in Geshel’s video show a typical reaction to being in a confined space.
"Alligators are most active in warm weather, and in some places in Florida it can happen all year round," Kilborne said in a written statement.
The expert said that it is important for residents to understand: alligators can be in any body of water, regardless of the weather.
The mating season begins with alligators in April, and mating usually occurs in May and June. According to a FWC spokeswoman, reptiles become sexually mature and active when they reach about 7 feet (about 2,1 meters) in length.
What to do if you find an alligator:
- Keep a safe distance. Never feed a reptile - by feeding, alligators can overcome their natural alertness and learn to associate people with food.
- Swim only in designated swimming areas during daylight hours. Alligators are most active between dusk and dawn.
- Keep your pets on a leash and away from the water's edge. Pets can resemble the natural prey of alligators.
If you are concerned about the presence of an alligator, call the Nuisance Alligator hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286).
