We can relate: Huge gator moseys through South Carolina yard

Miami Herald Staff

One South Carolina family got quite the unexpected house call this week.

Sonya Gilreath told news outlets that her two children had been playing outside the family home in Goose Creek, S.C., when they spotted something in the bushes.

They suspected it was a turtle.

"And he started, what?" Gilreath asked the kids, ages 2 and 3, during an interview with Inside Edition.

"Walking!" they replied.

"And when he started walking, Mommy started running inside, right?!" Gilreath laughed.

She snapped an amazing photo of the children peering through a window at the beast, casually strolling across the yard.
