Why do we not see lots of reports of them attacking and eating people? Does it happen? Is it frequent? For God's sake! That gator is as big as some Nile Crocodiles!
Because most of us sane folks here in FL stay out pf their backyard and get help when they come into ours!
Between the gators inland and the sharks in the surf, we have some critters you need to take seriously, especially the little ones like mosquitoes.....
