At its loudest, when it bellows, an alligator about as loud as a small plane.
At a distance of sixteen feet, that measures about 92 decibels.
Bet that’s louder than you can scream.
Bellowing occurs throughout the year to attract mates and is also a show of hostility among males, but is most frequent during the courting season.
Sometimes Alligators bellow just for fun. You would too.
