    An alligator called Seven has been captured on video during cleaning procedures at the Everglades Holiday Park in south Florida just outside of Fort Lauderdale and Miami, the United States.

    Brave woman Gabby Nikolle has posted a video of her scratching a 9-foot-7-inch alligator's back with a brush. The video of the procedure has gone viral on social networks. The reptile that weighs 280 pounds received its name "Seven" because of the missing toe on its back feet. Alligators usually have four toes on each hind foot.
