Not even a good solid fence can keep these dangerous giants away.

Alligators are cold-blooded reptiles that rely on the environment to regulate their body temperature. As the temperature rises, their metabolism increases, and they become more active. Therefore, with warmer weather, observing an increase in alligator activity is natural.
Dean Brown, an official responsible for code enforcement, stumbled upon an 8-foot-long alligator living in the attic of a house. Initially, due to the dim lighting in the attic, Brown mistook the alligator for a "fake, stuffed gator of some sort." However, when he shined his flashlight on the reptile's head, its eyes opened, and it gave Brown a wink, indicating that it was alive.
Although Brown had previous encounters with alligators, this was the first time he encountered one indoors.
The home builder had noticed mud in the house, and called in crews to clean it up. Work resumed on the property for a day and a half before Brown discovered the alligator, and upon realization, the workers left the site.
The cause of the alligator's presence in the attic remains unclear, but Brown speculated that it might have entered the house through an open door.
But how does this thing get up in the attic?
Alligators are strong and powerful animals that are capable of climbing or crawling into spaces
It is possible that the reptile climbed up a tree or used a nearby object to gain access to the roof of the house. From there, the alligator could have found an opening, such as a loose vent or broken shingle, and made its way inside the attic.
To prevent alligators from entering homes or other buildings, it is important to keep doors and windows closed and secure, especially during alligator mating season, which occurs between April and June in most parts of the United States. It is also recommended to install screens and secure vents to prevent alligators and other wildlife from entering buildings.
