Even nature is amazed at the size of this gator!

When it comes to big alligators, they pretty much just do whatever they want. Because let's face it. Very few people are going to try and stop them. That was the case with this huge gator that was seen crossing the fairway of Ocean Creek golf course in Florida in 2018. Alligators on a golf course are not an uncommon sight in Florida, but this one was large enough to make anyone look twice.

All the golfers immediately forgot about getting to the next hole and stopped to take photos and video of the dinosaur crossing the fairways.

Even the deer in the background seem genuinely stunned to see such a huge reptile up close and personal.

It looks like something out of a horror movie, doesn't it? What a monstrous alligator! The video's description estimates this beast to be about 12 feet in length. The camera's perspective and the way it is framed may make it look much larger. However, this reptile is definitely large enough to chow down on a human or any of the deer feeding in the background. Thus, we can understand their concern and why they were keeping such a close eye on it.

Hopefully the doe with the fawn kept a close eye on this big guy. It would not take much for a gator this size to swallow up a baby deer in an instant! You know, we hate holding up others on the golf course, but this is one instance where no one should be playing through. At least not until this big guy has gotten to wherever he is going next!
