Well that doesn’t belong there…
Beachgoers in Florida were shocked to find a monster alligator on the shore of Delray Beach, about 50 miles north of Miami, last week. According to Newsweek, the alligator was nearly 12 feet long.
While alligators are almost exclusively freshwater creatures, they make excursions through brackish water and on rare occasions, like this one, venture into saltwater if they feel like it, where they can survive for days.
After it was spotted, authorities were called and, after a minor struggle, had the alligator under control within an hour. It was transported to a conservation farm nearby.
Can you imagine taking a nice morning walk on the beach without worrying in the slightest about a freshwater dinosaur showing up until, BAM, you come across it head-on?
That’s exactly what happened to Kimberly Klein, who was walking her tiny dog just feet from the alligator before they saw him.
But when WPFB asked 25 News if she loved Florida less or more after the incident, she still had nothing but love for her home.
“Obviously more, I mean, what’s not to love about seeing a friggin’ alligator on the beach?”
Ahh, a Florida woman at her best…love the Sunshine State and its people.
That’s a damn dinosaur…
