Love is in the air if you're an alligator or crocodile. And that means everyone else has to be on the lookout for amorous alligators and frisky crocs who are more active and visible this time of year and potentially more aggressive. That may be why the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office was called about a giant gator discovered under a parked car at an apartment complex in Tampa on March 31.

TAMPA (CBSMiami) – Love is in the air if you’re an alligator or crocodile.

And that means everyone else has to be on the lookout for amorous alligators and frisky crocs who are more active and visible this time of year and potentially more aggressive.

The alligator’s capture was recorded on a deputy’s body camera.

It’s likely more alligators will be seen in lakes, rivers and habitats where they live and males will also move over land during this time of year, from one body of water to another.

Anyone who spots an alligator where it doesn’t belong should remember to keep a safe distance and call FWC’s toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 𝟴𝟲𝟲-𝟯𝟵𝟮-𝟰𝟮𝟴𝟲.

FWC says an alligator can be considered a nuisance if it is at least four feet in length and could be a threat to people, pets or property.
