"I have been more scared when they just cross with no warning on Alligator Alley trail". We're glad you didn't get eaten.

Viewers have nicknamed the alligator "Mr Humpback", calling it a "swamp monster" and "Godzilla". It's understandable that such a large population of alligators pose a serious threat to pets. Florida's heaviest recorded gator was a 1,043-pound, 13-foot-10½-inch male at Orange Lake in Alachua County. Visitors wasted no time in taking pictures and recording its video. Fish, snakes, small mammals and birds are each among the animal's many dining options, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. It is unclear whether the Circle B giant alligator has been previously fed by humans and therefore was unfazed by the human onlookers.
