Many might assume that the homeowners found an alligator beneath their home. However, it couldn’t have been an alligator, because they rarely grow beyond ten feet long.

The largest alligator recorded in Florida was a little over 14 feet long. Plus, they are a necessary part of the food chain, not a danger to Florida’s wildlife.
