What This Alligator Just Did Proves That We Should Be Very, Very Afraid

If you live in the South and you hear an unexpected visitor at the door, make sure it isn't a gator before you open it.

OMG

Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts. There is perhaps no creature that's more universally feared than the alligator, and that's especially true in the South, where these reptiles reign supreme. These scary buggers love going where they don't belong just to prove that they can.

And that urge often brings them into close contact with humans. Earlier this week, a family in South Carolina learned that terrifying lesson when an alligator sauntered right up to their front door and rang the bell.

That being said, if you live near alligators and your doorbell rings when you're not expecting anyone, you should probably just run and hide. These gators are getting a little too smart for my liking.
