Wow. 28 feet long, huh?

Forget the gator. I did a rough estimate comparing the deer to the alligator. Putting the gator at 28' makes the deer about 19' from the neck to the tail.
That's longer than a moose


As posted, the length actually was between 12 and 14 feet.

In reading more i've seen that they had a skull and after measuring it, it was "only" 15.7 ft.
The biggest know croc alive is called gustav and he is pretty big!




This one is better but i can't make a video link to it go there



Cheers

Actually the report goes on to say that it was actually 16 feet or so.
But i know they get sometimes to 25-23 feet..
in any matter that first photo of the aligator id great ..His frikkin head is huge, easily the size of that deer

And as far as great White vs Croc, it would have to be in deep water thus giving the Great white a huge advantage as they ambush from below, I dont think the croc would know what hit him

It doesn't really look that much bigger than the deer it's carrying. In Africa, crocodiles take down all manner of 4-hoofed game like nothing. This thing just looks normal to me.

Just when I thought it was safe to go back in the (bath) water.
First it was JAWS, now this.
EEEK!

That is a mighty impressive amazing animal.
Too bad it’s dead.
Would love to have seen it taken to a facility to keep it alive.

Dang that’s gonna make a real pair a Texas gator boots huh!

No modern Crocs get past 25 ft. The biggest American Alligators get maybe 15-16. As for Gustave, if its true he managed to bring down an adult hippo, I'm staying clear away from that croc.

Here's the explanation on Snopes.com

There's been some conflicting explanations for the pictures in the OP.

Snopes attempts to track down the truth. Apparently the location shifted from TX to FL to GA depending on where the email was being sent out.

I had a friend that recently purchased a baby alligator (about 8") long. I told him it was the dumbest thing he has ever done.

I'm wondering what he is going to do when it outgrows him.

Anyway GUSTAV is freaking HUGE and so is the OP alligator. I felt a very cold shiver run up my spine when I saw the pictures.
