Gator knocks on South Carolina homeowner's door

- A homeowner in South Carolina got an unusual, and likely, unwanted visitor this week.

An alligator was spotted crawling onto the home's front porch and stretching itself up toward the doorbell with its body.

Gary Rodgers was passing by the home when he saw the large reptile creeping around the home and caught the encounter on cell phone video.

The gator eventually walked around to the side of the house near the backyard gate and was seen trying to climb the fence, unsuccessfully.

The alligator crept around the neighborhood for about an hour before eventually leaving.

No one was home at the time, but the homeowner says the alligator left behind a few scratch marks.
