Alligator Spotted in Overflowing Naples Waterway During Tropical Storm Sally

An alligator was spotted hanging out in an overflowing waterway in Naples, Florida, after Tropical Storm Sally brought rain to the area on Sunday, September 13.

John Montroy said this footage shows the reptile relaxing in a flooded reservoir outside of the Tropic Schooner Condominiums in Naples. Montroy told Storyful the gator was still in the same spot when he checked again on Monday morning.
