A South Carolina family was scared inside by a showboating alligator.
Sonya Gilreath’s two children were playing outside their Goose Creek, South Carolina home when they saw something in the bushes. They figured it might be a turtle.
But it wasn’t a turtle.
When the alligator started walking toward the two- and three-year-old children, “Mommy started running inside, right?!” Gilreath laughs.
Safely inside the house, Gilreath caught a unique photo of her children staring outside at the ancient alligator as it sauntered around their neighborhood.
