Watch: Intrepid alligators swim in back garden of flood-hit Texas home

Text size Aa Aa

A woman living in Texas was shocked to find two alligators in her flooded back garden.

Arlene Gonzalez Kelsch filmed the reptiles swimming near her house after Hurricane Harvey unleashed record-breaking downpours.

She claimed they swam through a ‘dent in the fence’ caused by a storm last year.

The video was posted on Facebook and has reached over 79,000 views.

The slow-moving storm has brought catastrophic flooding to Texas, killed at least nine people and led to mass evacuations and paralysed Houston, the fourth most-populous US city.
