I was brought up around alligators, and I was always taught to respect them. They are fast, agile, ferocious, strong and, too often, hungry.

With that being said, I had to do a double-take when I saw this lady petting an alligator. Watch!

 

 

I don't know if that lady raised the alligator from a hatchlng and they have a great bond, or if she just made "friends" with it, but IMHO, alligators are too unpredictable to get that cozy with them!
