Sunny 106.3 Mornings With Gina Birch

Weekdays 6am - 10am

Alligator Videos for TikTok Tuesday are soooo Florida. They are fascinating creatures aren’t they? They can also be pretty dangerous. We often see them on golf courses, on the side of roadways and floating in lakes and ponds where we live, so we kind of get used to them. But don’t get complacent. They can be deadly.

Even though it’s not an uncommon site, I still get excited when I see one. I grab my phone and snap a photo or video. I have no idea why. Maybe to show my friends who don’t live here, what Florida can be like. This video was taken driving through my neighborhood not too long ago.

I often see alligator videos show up on my social media feeds. This week there was a video of teenagers harassing a gator. I’m not posting any photos or videos of people doing stupid things with alligators or any animals. Just because an alligator or wild animal does not injury the person in some of these videos does not mean it wont happen. It does. Wild animals deserver our respect.

Those teenagers sent me down a gator rabbit hole with social media. You do not have to subscribe to, or have a TikTok account of your own to view these.
