This crossed the road in front of my wife and me this morning in worth county going to my sister's. We rounded a curve and started down a hill and he was laying on my side in the road. He saw us and raised up and walked into the ditch. I got to him and got out and took pics with my phone. He was 9 or 10 feet. Looked lot bigger when standing about 10 feet away.

One like that does a lot of damage to a car when it hits one.

I bet she did. :D

I nearly hit one not quite big as that one over at Cordray`s Mill on 62 a few years ago. That would have been a big mess on everybody`s part. There was a Godzilla sized gator got hit on 82 in Acree about 10 years ago. Him and the car were a total loss.

Yes, but there is a hunting season on them. To get a gator tag you have to apply for it and names are computer drawn.
 
Not something you see every day.

I saw on the news a couple weeks ago where a woman and her two kids were killed when they hit a 9-foot alligator on I-95 in SC.
