    Thumbs up Monster Alligator In Florida

    Monster Alligator In Florida Looks Like Something From ‘Jurassic Park’



    You can practically hear the “Jurassic Park” theme as you watch this footage of a giant alligator lumbering across the Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida.

    The gator was so big that many believed the video was created with computer animation — and even the guy who recorded it and posted the clip online last week had his doubts.

    “I didn’t know if we were being punked or something,” golfer Charles Helms told ABC affiliate WFTS in Tampa.

    The alligator, estimated to be about 15 feet long, looked so much like something from a “Jurassic Park” film that someone added the footage to a scene from the first movie:



    Helms told Golf.com that the creature could only move about 100 feet at a time before stopping to rest. He also said gators on golf courses generally leave people alone.

    “It is very common to see alligators on a Florida golf course and they’re typically not a threat to golfers,” Helms told the website. “Wild alligators are shy and will not bother you unless you provoke it or corner it so it feels threatened.”

    The gator has become something of a mascot for the course.

    “People have heard that he is out here and that is all they want to see so they will bring spectators to ride so somebody can get a picture,” Wendy Schofield, a clerk at the pro shop, told NBC station News 3 in Las Vegas. “He doesn’t bother anybody and they don’t bother him.”

    The gator even has its own page on Snopes, the myth-busting website, which confirmed that the footage was indeed real.

    So Crocs are deadly, but Gators are gentle?

    I can never tell the difference.

    Geez, I thought the video was footage of my old backyard, in South Africa!

    We've got several wildlife refuges in my area. One of them has a drive-thru area where you can see some pretty big gators. 12' is not uncommon at all and we've seen some in the 13-14 foot range but that unit is yuuuuuge!!!

    Nah. Here's a saltwater croc. Snout is more narrow and longer than a gator's.

    A few thoughts.

    Holy fucking shit balls!

    The guy whose video we're watching, "Dave, get next to it for perspective." I pride myself on quick wit, but I'd probably be running in the other direction. Kudos for that line.

    The guy we see filming, turn your phone sideways, dummy!

    Did you know a nest of gator eggs will be all male or all female and that will be determined by the nest temperature?

    one of the reasons I don't want to move south...those things scare the crap out of me...and the story were they found 2 gators feasting on a human body in S Florida? OMG

    my brother's neighbor had a 4 season room on the back of his house. They left their spaniel in there one day. Came home, no spaniel just a gaping hole in the bottom of the door

    gators in the everglades or in conservation areas? OK. gators in neighborhoods? shoot em. every one of them

    Wow! Humungo!
    Amazing how much bigger the Crocs get.

    I saw one that big when I down their long ago. He was sitting on the slope of the 18th hole. Golfers were basically four feet away from the thing but couldn't see it cuz of the slope.

    Definitely can't walk close to the banks down their. Had one jump at me then run a bit. Had I fell he had me.
