David Tetzlaff, right, Caribbean Gardens Zoo director, jumps back as an alligator unexpectedly snaps at him as he and the zoo staff were releasing it into its new environment Wednesday. 'When they grab, they don't let go. It's an extremely powerful animal,' Tetzlaff said. Five new female alligators from 61U2 to 7 feet long arrived from St. Augustine Alligator Farm and joined seven alligators already residing in Alligator Bay at Caribbean Gardens Zoo in Naples.
