WILMINGTON, N.C. — A massive alligator was caught on camera taking a stroll Tuesday morning near a busy overpass in North Carolina.

The big gator, which police said was about 11 feet, was spotted on a bridge underneath an overpass in Wilmington.

Police temporarily closed the street until the gator decided to slowly move out of the way.

The reptile took its time, momentarily stopping to rest in the shade.

But eventually, with pressure from surrounding officers, the gargantuan gator moved into the marsh next to the bridge.
