A South Carolina couple got quite the shock when they opened their front door. Sitting outside their porch, was a big alligator.

The couple said they were asleep when they heard loud banging coming from their front porch. When Charles Monteith opened the door, they saw the gator, which began hissing and thrashing as the door opened.

"He came running upstairs saying every four letter word he knew and I thought someone had stolen all our cars," said Louise, his wife. "I said, 'What's wrong' and he said, ‘There is a gator on our porch.’"

The couple stayed inside their home until the police arrived, and were able to safely wrangle the gator.
