The massive reptile weighs more than 650 pounds and is believed to be as much as 60 years old. Even this alligator is dwarved however by the largest ever caught which was found in Louisiana and measured a staggering 19ft in length.

"One of the largest alligators in the world has been caught in Florida."

An alligator has no problem eating us, 60 years old or otherwise, I say lets keep humans on the top of the food chain!

Humans love to conquer and kill. Take everything, strip every resource, take no time to understand the eco-system. People will argue anything that justifies their actions.

The answer here is simple: this is Florida. I'm not originally from Florida but I live here now and I can tell you the people love nothing more than to kill things, plain and simple. If you don't hunt or at least own a gun, then you have no friends. Once you get away from the coasts and major cities/tourist areas, that's the way it is.

Do you really think that we have problems staying at the top of the food chain?? By following such paranoid logic, we might as well exterminate anything that moves. The extinction of various species during the last couple of centuries is just a by-product of modern human's lifestyle. We are capable of exterminating entire species, not just killing, only in the process of sustaining our lifestyle alone. So that'... [More]
