That's one very big gator!






(Yahoo.com)-Video has emerged of a massive alligator strolling past an awed group of Florida tourists, as if it had not a care in the world.

The gator, spotted at Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland, appeared to be about 12 feet long.

It's a good thing that gator wasn't hungry. He could have run down any of those people and chomped 'em. They can outrun a horse.

But there is this to consider.

I have seen much bigger here. Still, that one is plenty big. Swimming in lakes here in Florida doesn't happen much.

Hah My folks just left yesterday heading to Florida. Dad had me go find a walking stick in case he had to "beat off a gator." I think he may need a bigger stick.

That was my first thought, and those folk in the background look quite far away to be honest.

It is a big ole gator though.

If there wasn't so many old people in Florida feeding them , then they wouldn't get so big...

Ah, my home state's wildlife never ceases to amaze. There's bigger gators than that, and they don't even stick to the inland water sources. They've been known to swim intercoastals and lounge on the mainland side of the keys (islands)

Still, it's a good reason (not the top one, but on that list) not to move back to America's Australia. Nope, you folks still there can have the "everything here will eat you/kill you" state all you want.

My brother killed one that was 12' 8'' when he was a kid.
That sucker could swallow a small child in one gulp if it wanted to.
This was in a swampy area on the Texas Gulf Coast.
There are some big ones out there.

Worlds Biggest


The mammoth beast, which measured 15 feet and 9 inches long and weighed 1,011.5 pounds, was captured last August by five members of the Stokes family in Mill Creek, Al.com reported.

The Stokes alligator has been mounted and put on display at the Montgomery Zoo's Mann Wildlife Learning Museum.


A whole set of luggage in one Gator.

I've seen a 12 footer close up in the Everglades on vacation a few years back. A family that was at the same location let their kids get within a few feet of it and I had to leave and did not want to watch it if he was hungry. It was at a spot people used to launch their fishing boats and they would toss their fish guts in the water there and the Gator was way to comfortable with people as a result.
