Imagine going to your front door to greet an expected friend and finding a three-legged alligator instead. Robbin Stratton-Upson of Kings Point can relate exactly what that feels like.

“I could hear someone at our front screen door around 3 p.m.,” said Stratton-Upson. “ I thought it was my friend picking me up for a dinner party, and maybe she was having trouble with the door. I was extremely shocked when I opened the front door!”

It seems this reptile has been seen in the neighborhood on several occasions. He is easily identified by his size — seven to eight feet long — and the absence of his front left leg.

After his visit, he made his way back to one of the many ponds in the Devonshire area.

No doubt it was an April Fool’s Day Stratton-Upson won’t soon forget.

The gator is missing a front leg.
