NORTH PORT, Fla -- Only in Florida will a gator cross the street right in front of you and then take a stroll down the sidewalk.

Check out this video Jessica Brown captured in North Port on Friday. It was shot near the Publix on Sumter and Price.

She says it walked right across the street, stopping traffic, and then onto the sidewalk, where it took a casual stroll.

We’ve been telling you for the last couple weeks that gators have been getting more active with the warmer temperatures.
