Alligators bellowing are often asign of mating season, according to the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens in Naples, Fla., though gators do bellow all year round.
“Alligators also may bellow to communicate size to each other,” the zoo said in a Facebook post showing some of their gators making the noise in April. “While both males and females bellow, males can reach a lower frequency.”
The FWC recommends not swimming during dusk or dawn — an alligator’s most active hours — keeping animals on a leash and away from water and keeping a safe distance if they come into contact with the large creature.
