(WLTX) An area near Timmerman Trail was blocked and is now open after a four-legged reptile was spotted there Saturday morning.

Officers from the Cayce Department of Public Safety closed the area near the bridge by SCANA and the walking trail out of precaution. The 9-foot gator was spotted at around 11:00 a.m.

According to SCIWAY's scgreatoutdoors.com, it is possible to see snakes, alligators and other wildlife in that area.
