9-Foot Gator In Lakes at Boca Raton

A reader sent us a photo of an alligator taken out of one of the lakes in the Lakes at Boca Raton development, just north of Yamato off of Cain Blvd.
The red oval on the map below shows the location, near the basketball courts and the clubhouse.
We’ve also pasted an interactive map from Google, below.

While it looks large to us, full grown alligators can reach 13 feet or longer.
The reader submitted the photo to us via our West Boca News Facebook page.
Update: Another reader posted photos of the gator swimming in the lake some time before this incident.
