This seems like something only a true Louisiana family could pull off.

A video has gone viral showing a group of kids swimming dangerously close to an alligator. They all know it's there, including the grown-ups, they just don't care.

I haven't found out yet where this family is from, but seriously, it has to be Louisiana, right?

It's unreal and defies logic. The family is so accepting of the alligator and it's presence, they name it "Pete". At one point, a kid swings off a rope and lands directly next to it. Somehow the alligator resisted biting the kid instantly and swallowing him whole, instead, it just swam away.

What in the world???
