Man records jaw-dropping video of hissing gator in storm gutter

APOPKA, FL (WFTV/CNN) – A Florida man says he felt the earth shake when he went to check his mailbox. And that’s when he discovered an alligator was living in the drain system.

The 8-foot alligator snuck up on Louis Camacho when he went out to get the mail.

“I moved over and looked down, thinking it was some type of earthquake, but it wasn’t. Then I felt the vibration again,” Camacho recalled.
