Giant alligator goes for a stroll in Florida

A huge alligator was filmed by tourists at the Circle B Bar Reserve in Polk County, Florida this week.
Despite its species' ferocious reputation, the enormous reptile didn't seem to be even remotely bothered by the small crowd of camera-wielding tourists who were waiting to take its picture.

Known as 'Humpback', the alligator has since become something of a celebrity.

"He was the biggest gator I have seen out there," said Kim Joiner, a visitor to the reserve who captured video footage of the encounter. "I have been going out there for years too."

Of course I watched it. What I`m wondering about is that the ppl are just a few meters away and some of them are lieing on the ground with no chance to flee in case of an attack. (PS: No, I will not click on your thread "cooking with poo" )

  I expect the camera perspective makes the people seem closer and you REALLY should read about Cooking with Poo! In fact everyone should!  Now Ive learned the term I will be asking for Fresh Poo every time I eat Thai

Amazing how a lot of people thinks this gator is fake. Someone could be filming a real live bigfoot or alien and people will think it's fake.

That's one serious gator. Wouldn't want to meet up with him in the local pond.

Really impressive animal. That said...I'm glad I don't live in Florida.
