Photos: Gator Spotted in East Lake
Here's proof that it pays to have a camera handy!
We spotted this small gator while waiting at the red light at the intersection of Tampa Road and the northbound exit lane off McMullen Booth Road.
The gator appeared to have wandered out of the Tarpon Outfall Canal, and it looked like he could not decide if he wanted to cross Tampa Road. After looking out on to the road for about a minute, he scampered back toward the water.
The gator looked like he was about 2-3 feet long.
