Massive Alligator Stuns Photographers, Proves Just How Wild Florida Is

A massive gator took a stroll at the Circle B Bar Reserve

People on social media are going insane over a massive alligator recorded Sunday at a nature reserve in Polk County, Florida.

In a video taken Sunday afternoon at the Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland, the huge reptile appears out of some brush and slowly walks across a patch of grass on the reserve's Marsh Rabbit Run.

More than a million alligators live throughout Florida, and the species if on the endangered species list as it looks very similar to the American crocodile.


A witness says that when the estimated 12-foot-long real alligator came out, everyone began recording on the phones.

The video, which Joiner shared on the Circle B Bar Reserve Facebook page, has more than 15,000 shares and 2,600 likes. The video owner Kim Joiner, shot the video while out on a trail with a group. "I go to Circle B 3-4 times a week and have never been of interest to the gators there".
