Massive Alligator Rests at Entrance of Florida Home

A massive alligator blocked the entryway to a home near Tampa, Florida, on May 11, taking a rest on the welcome mat.

Video recorded by Edward Ferraro shows a large alligator curled up on his home’s front stoop. “Just another day here in Tampa,” he begins the video jokingly.

“I heard a rustling at the door and assumed it was a delivery,” Ferraro told Storyful about initially finding the reptile. “He hung out for about 10 minutes and then got up and walked into the lake behind my home.” Credit: Edward Ferraro via Storyful
