True Story: Family Swims with a Florida Alligator

Would you let your family swim with an alligator?

Alligators in Florida are the alpha predators of the water. They can and will kill you and stuff you under a log for later tasty treats. Do these folks know that?

Well, in this video shared on Youtube by Mitchell Wiggs, a family is hanging out with a Florida alligator. First, dangling a foot off the dock gets the attention of this leftover dinosaur era predator. Well, then, one of the family members cannonballs into the water and lands almost on the wolf of the waterways. That seems like a wise thing to do, right?

Let this video be a lesson to you that wild animals are indeed wild. Predators kill for survival. Swimming with alligators might make your family a whole lot smaller really quickly.
