What’s the most disturbing thing a gigantic alligator can be caught doing?
Eating a smaller version of itself.
That may have never crossed our minds had we not seen this video out of Lakeland, Florida, on a 1,267-acre reserve, according to The Huffington Post.
According to a description for the video he posted to YouTube, which now has over 730,000 views, Alex Figueroa estimated the larger gator to be 11 or 12 feet long .
He wasn’t the sole witness, though. Multiple people caught the sight and posted clips online for hundreds of thousands to see.
“ My heart was racing ,” witness Andrew Lilyquist told WFTS in nearby Tampa. “I just saw that big head and I said ok this is going to be great.”
According to experts, this type of behavior in alligators is common, especially during mating season when they are more aggressive.
