Only 12 feet? That's a medium sized one... sigh
While it is not necessarily the longest or heaviest, I think it is the oddest gator I've ever seen. We don't have them right here where I live, but they can be found in the Tennessee Valley thirty-five miles north and two counties to the south. A few years ago, some guys from my hometown caught the state record down in south Alabama, but this one behemoth trumped it. It was a beast!http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2016/10/record-breaking_900-pound_gato.html
Except for three years in Germany I've lived in Florida since the day Elvis died.I have shot Alligators, Run over their tails, threw the little ones back into the creek. I used to live about 20 miles from Lakeland in a little town called Lithia.they were all over the place .... but I never saw one that massive. That thing couldeat one of your kids in one bite !
Elvis is dead?
That guy is about 4 miles from where I am currently setting. He is big but I have seen considerably larger in the Blue Cypress while Bass fishing. Not impressed, living in Florida all my life.
