How Loud is an Alligator when it Bellows and why do they make that Sound?

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.
