The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office recently responded to a call regarding a 10-foot, 2-inch alligator spotted under a parked car in Tampa, Florida.

Deputies and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) responded to the March 31 call at 8:45 a.m. and dispatched a “contracted nuisance alligator trapper” to transport the animal to an alligator farm, according to a Facebook post sharing bodycam footage of the capture first reported by Fox 13 Tampa.

“IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR — it’s mating season and in general, gators become more visible and active during spring and summer!” the HCSO said in the Facebook post. “When temperatures rise, their metabolism increases, and they start looking for food.”

The alligator was not harmed, and nobody was injured.

Florida alligator sightings usually increase during mating season between April and June. Female gators can lay up to 46 eggs between June and July, and the baby alligators are usually born between August and September, according to the FWC. 

The SCHO said that people with concerns about alligators should call the FWC’s Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-392-4289.
