A mother alligator here in Florida chased off a man attempting to take a photograph.
The gator is seen sprinting from the edge of the water to snap its jaws around a tripod the man placed on the grassy slope.
After hopping behind a small bush, the man slowly backed away and continued to snap pics of the gator using his phone’s camera.
Eventually the gator made its way back into the water, but lunged at the man once again when he attempted to go back and collect the bag that contained his camera.
Despite the second close encounter, the man continued to film the gator on his cellphone while backing away to a safer area. More on this story here.

I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. I’m very proud of my Puerto Rican heritage. I speak fluent Spanish. I love the outdoors, playing with my kids, and spending time in the kitchen with my wife Jennifer. Very few people in this world are blessed to do something they love for a living. I really love my job! I caught the radio bug when I was 9 years old. I sat there, watching my dad run a broadcast and speaking through a microphone to live callers. It amazed me so much..So much that it’s my life now, and I love it!
