Damn!! Godzilla is back on all fours again. :shock:

He must have gotten tired of swatting at electrical towers and stepping on the candy store.

Should we be worried that these gators are getting this big? Like, are they evolving back towards dinosaurs?

It's a big gator, but the size is exaggerated by the camera angle. The camera filming is practically on the ground.

Saw that the other day.

Thing is: an even bigger one showed up on a golf course in Manatee County a while back.

The one in the OP's link was about a ten footer. The one in the video I just posted was more like about 15'.

I've seen lots of gators in the wild-- they're all over the place down here. But usually the bigger ones are only about six footers, with the occasional eight footer paddling by in the St. John's River.

The record for largest alligator ever taken was a 15 foot, 9 inch gator in Mill Creek, Alabama. The one in the video I posted is about the same size, though.

The most gators I ever saw in my life was while riding my motorcycle on Rt. SR29 between Harker, FL and Felda, FL... must have seen at least 50 of 'em lazing on the side of the road, late at night. The biggest ones were only about seven footers, though.

Still a crazy ride, though. :D

Check this old pic out from 1958, Krys an Australian Saltwater Crocodile at 28' (the photo is a froced perspective so it looks larger than it is but 28" :wow:: -
