There is perhaps no creature that’s more universally feared than the alligator.

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.

It sounds like the beginning of a terrible children’s movie, but the man who shot this video captured the whole ordeal.

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.
