Crocodile video released the moment he rushed out of the water before killing an 85-year-old woman


Crocodile video released the moment he rushed out of

the water before killing an 85-year-old woman

A video showing the moment of a 10-foot alligator rush was released to an 85-year-old woman in Florida. The video does not show the beast dragging the woman into the pool after she tried to protect her dog.

She didn't survive.

The video you can see below was obtained by Inside Edition.

Gloria Serge is shown standing with her dog tied up along a lake outside of Spanish Lex Fairways, a community in Fort Pierce, Florida.

The alligator is seen floating on the roof and swimming sneakily towards the woman and her dog. She doesn't notice it until he leaves the water and at that time she tries to protect her dog, the intended target of the beast.

Serge was dragged underwater and killed in the attack.

Neighbor Carol Thomas said she tried to help Serge while speaking with 911.

There's a woman in the lake! The crocodile got it!

Thomas told the dispatcher. "I think she's gone. Oh my god

Thomas said she tried to use a pole and help pull Serge out of the lake but it didn't work.

"There's no way to reach it sooner," she said.

  • It's terrible for her family.
  • It's just horrible, horrible.
  • And her friends, I talked to two of her friends yesterday in meltdown. 

Crocodile hunter Robert Lilly said "it was definitely a battle" to catch the beast.

"We hung him at the bottom. He never showed up. "He stayed low all the time," Lily said.

"We managed to get a second hook in it and a hard line in it so we could wake it up."

Crocodiles in Florida: a wonderful and controversial species

Crocodiles are wonderful creatures that have attracted the attention of people all over the world. While many of us associate these creatures with exotic places like Africa or Australia, they are also found in the United States, especially in Florida.

Crocodiles are often confused with crocodiles also found in Florida.

However :

  • there are many major differences between the two species.
  • Crocodiles have a V-shaped nose
  • while alligators have a more rounded nose.

Crocodiles also have visible teeth on their lower jaw even when their mouth is closed, while alligators do not. Finally, crocodile color is generally lighter than crocodile color.

Florida is home to two types of alligator:

American alligator and Cuban alligator.

The American crocodile is the largest of the two

with adults up to 14 feet long and weights up to 2,000 pounds.

On the other hand

Cuban crocodiles are smaller, usually up to about 10 feet long.

While crocodiles are found around the world in warm tropics

their population in Florida is particularly noteworthy.

This is because American alligators are considered endangered species

and Florida is one of the only places in the world where they can be found in large numbers. In fact, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that there are only about 2,000 American crocodiles worldwide.

Despite its endangered status

crocodiles in Florida have been the subject of controversy over the years.

One of the main reasons for this is that they sometimes conflict with humans. This is especially true in urban areas, where crocodiles may roam residential neighbourhoods in search of food.

While attacks on humans by crocodiles are rare

they occur. In 2014 :

for example :

  • an alligator attacked a canal swimmer near Miami
  • causing serious injuries. However, such incidents are relatively rare
  • and there have been no deaths from crocodile attacks in Florida since 2007.

Another issue that has raised concerns about

crocodiles in Florida is their potential impact on other wildlife.

  • Some experts believe that crocodiles may contribute to
  • the degradation of certain species
  • such as sea turtles and small mammals.

However :

others argue that crocodiles are an important part of

the ecosystem, and that their existence is necessary to maintain a healthy balance of species.

Despite the controversy surrounding crocodiles in Florida

there is no denying that they are fascinating and important species.

With its strong jaws :

exquisite size and unique adjustments, it really is nature's marvel.

While its existence can sometimes be a cause for concern, it is important to remember that it is an integral part of the ecosystem and that efforts should be made to protect and preserve it for future generations.
