EVERGLADES CITY, Fla. — A wildlife photographer had a very close encounter with a massive gator in the Everglades.
Conny Randolph with the Big Cypress Gallery was in the Big Cypress National Preserve this week when a mammoth 10-foot gator named Loosescrew got within feet of her.
Randolph said Loosescrew, also called Snaggletooth, has lived on the property for more than 20 years.
"I'm gonna back up a little bit," Randolph said in the video, shortly before Loosescrew started hissing loudly.
