A huge alligator was seen at Valencia Golf & Country Club in Naples, Florida during tropical storm Eta by Tyler Stolting, a professional at the club, on Wednesday.
He recorded the alligator and posted the video on social media. The video quickly went viral, and many people thought it was fake.
However, according to David Sheen, the reptile and amphibian research leader of the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, there was “nothing unusual” about the size of the alligator.
“It’s an iconic species and conservation success story. But in short, there’s nothing unusual about this alligator or the video,” he said on Twitter.
What would you do if you saw an alligator that big roaming around?
