Ever hear a Florida alligator bellow? #video

Posted By on September 29, 2019

This must be what it was like to live in the Jurassic era … or camping in the Everglades as mating season begins for the gators in Florida? (been there, done that!)


A post on Facebook from the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens in Naples, Florida shows three alligators bobbing in the water, making loud growling or roaring sounds.

A person nearby can be heard comparing the sound to dinosaurs.

“It sounds like something out of Jurassic Park,” the person is overheard saying.

According to the zoo’s caption on the video, alligators bellow all year, but they do it more often during mating season.
