This particular gator was pretty aggressive and professional gator catchers were called in order to wrangle the big dinosaur.

Alligators are relatively docile, as in they won't chase unless they are provoked. But the gator wranglers remind us to never feed alligators or get too close.

If provoked, alligators will charge and they can run up to 22 miles per hour on land. There are an estimated 400,000 alligators in southeast Texas.

Everything, even the gators, are bigger in Texas.
