    Moment gigantic alligator is seen stomping across Florida golf course

    Is that Godzilla? Moment gigantic alligator is seen stomping across Florida golf course as terrified viewers compare the beast to ‘something out of Jurassic Park’

    • The menacing beast was captured on video by golfer Jeff Jones at Valencia Golf and Country Club, in Naples sometime this week
    • The gator, which viewers have argued would look more at home in Jurassic Park than on the golf course, appears to be anywhere between 10 and 15 feet long
    • The sunshine state’s gators are known to grow up to huge eye-watering sizes, with the largest ever captured in Florida sizing up at a staggering 17.4 feet-long
    • Online, meanwhile, social media users have united in a collective voice of terror, with many likening the gator to the famous reptilian monster, Godzilla
    • Another user wrote: ‘That thing didn’t just survive the meteorite 65 million years ago, it rose up and headed it top corner’ 
    • The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has not yet returned a DailyMail.com request for comment on the sighting 

    A gigantic gator spotted stomping its way across a Florida golf course has sent social media into a frenzy.

    The menacing beast was captured on video by golfer Jeff Jones at Valencia Golf and Country Club, in Naples, as Hurricane Eta swept through the region on Wednesday.

    The gator, which viewers have argued would look more at home in Jurassic Park than on a golf course, is seen strutting across the fairway before submerging itself in a nearby lake.

    ‘Holy …,’ one golfer can be heard remarking in the video. ‘This guy out for a stroll – oh, my God!’

    The sunshine state’s gators are renown for growing up to huge eye-watering sizes, with the largest ever captured in Florida sizing up at a staggering 17.4 feet-long.

    And this ‘creature’ didn’t appear to be far off the record measurement.

    Online, meanwhile, social media users have united in a collective voice of terror, with many likening the gator to a famous reptilian monster.

    ‘That is Godzilla that is not a gator,’ wrote a shocked Alex Hoffman.

    Josh Helmuth also insisted ‘That’s no gator,’ instead concluding the creature depicted was a ‘walking, living dinosaur.’

    Another user wrote: ‘That thing didn’t just survive the meteorite 65 million years ago, it rose up and headed it top corner’.

    One user, who identified herself as a lifelong Floridian, said: ‘Holy s**t … I’ve seen a few gators in my time, but never one that big. His tail alone most weigh 100 pounds.’

    What appeared to be concerning observers most was the length of the gator’s legs, with Liz Dueweke asking, ‘Can someone from Florida explain to me why its legs are so long? I thought gators had itty bitty legs.’

    Alligators tend to use a high walk – also known as a slow trot – when moving longer distances. Typically there are seen in a crawling posture, which they use to travel shot distances, several users pointed out.

    But the facts offered little in the way of comfort, with Bill Wong nervously asking: ‘How fast can an alligator run? Asking for a friend.’

    ‘The real question is,’ one user responded, ’Who is faster, you or your “friend”.’

    Others jested that the most terrifying thing about the creature was its flagrant disregard for coronavirus pandemic protocol.

    ‘This is terrifying,’ wrote Judd Zulgad. ‘That gator isn’t wearing a mask.’

    ‘Where is he going,’ joked another user. ‘Mar-A-Lago is the other way.’

    An estimated 1.3 million alligators live in Florida, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife. There have only been five reported alligator-related fatalities in the state since 2010, and only 25 since 1948.

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has not yet returned a DailyMail.com request for comment on Wednesday’s sighting.
