The day I saw my first alligator, was one of the best days of my life. Scary, but fun. It was the Spring of 1997. My parents and I had moved here to Orlando when I was six years old. We moved in December, after the alligators had been put away, either hibernating, or at zoos. But that morning was so exciting, I didn’t want to leave this beautiful place, ever.

That morning, a beautiful Saturday morning, I woke up around seven, opened my blinds and turned to get dressed. That was when I caught myself, and spun around and saw at least twenty long green animals with big snouts. Alligators. As I stared out of my window, it sunk in. My backyard was full of alligators.
At first I had so many thoughts running through my head, I nearly fainted. I finally told myself to “pull yourself together”, and got dressed. I wanted to scream I was so scared, and wanted to run and play with them. I went out, but my mom pulled me back and called animal control. I saw them take away the strange bumpy creatures, probably to a zoo.

I will never forget those wondrous creatures, no matter what I do, or where I go. I will never forget the first sight of alligators
