We all have that one animal that completely terrifies us to our very core. Many people are deathly afraid of spiders, snakes or insects in general. What about alligators? They’ve been around since the prehistoric age and have survived through the centuries. They’re stealthy and strong animals that are not to be messed with. When we were younger, we were taught that if an alligator starts to chase after us, that we should run in a zig-zag pattern. The alligator’s large and cumbersome tail will keep it from being able to follow us as easily.
But what happens if that alligator ends up on your porch? If it seems like it’s going to be staying for awhile, you might have limited options. Hopefully, the alligator can be safely removed and transferred back into the nearest body of water. It can be frightening to open your curtains one night and find yourself hosting an alligator. In the age of Airbnb, it’s not all that uncommon to have a stranger as a guest, but an alligator isn’t exactly what most people have in mind.
