Imagine getting ding dong ditched only to find out that instead of some punk kids ringing your doorbell, you open the door to find an alligator. That's what happened to a family in South Carolina.

Gator sightings are not uncommon in the south, but to have one crawling up the front door of a house is pretty rare.

Gary Rogers was out walking his dog in Moncks Corner on Monday noticed an alligator wandering around some yards. That's when he grabbed his phone and got the big lizard on video.

"He was walking around in front of a couple of houses down in the cul-de-sac area. So we went down. Took a couple videos. Got some good shots of him. He was trying to climb the fence a couple times. Tried to climb somebody's door. It was pretty funny actually," Rogers told WCIV. "I'm not from the area, so seeing an alligator is interesting as far as I'm concerned."
