Monster gator keeps Florida neighborhood on alert

Woman snaps video of big alligator sauntering toward home

CAPE CORAL, Fla. – Neighbors are keeping their eye out for a monster alligator seen lurking near some homes.

A mother and son spotted the gator in Cape Coral and snapped video from inside the safety of their car.

Wildlife experts say it looks like a healthy, full-grown gator.

"Normally they'll move around throughout the storm drain so you don't seem them walking across on land," Stuart Spoede with the Florida Wildlife Commission explained to WINK-TV.

One neighbor says she has seen the very same gator in her canal but has never noticed it out walking in the yard.
