The short video, which sees an unnamed man literally prizing open the gator’s great mouth with his barehands, has been viewed more than eight million times on TikTok.
It was shared with the caption: “Would you? Walking the dog in Florida around any body of water is a r!sk we take.”Florida wildlife be sa-vages sometimes.”
In what appears to be security camera footage, a man wearing a white top can be seen ru-mmaging beneath the surface of a murky lake. He then sensationally pu-lls a tiny, squ!rming dog from the depths – as well as a giant scaly gator’s snout.
The man can be heard gr*aning as he dr-ags the alligator to the edge of the lake. The little dog emits high-pitched, te-rrified ye-lps as the man wre-stles with the gator’s giant teeth. Incredibly, the little brown and white pup manages to wr!ggle free and bound away from the te-rrifying scene.
The man is left wre-stling with the alligator as the video cuts out.It’s not yet clear where the incredible clip was filmed or who the man is – but it’s thought it may have been uploaded to a local Facebook group.And it’s not the first time a pup has fallen prey to a de-adly Florida gator.In September a giant alligator devoured a German Shepherd pup while she played in her backyard, leaving her owners heartbr-oken.
And just last week a giant gator-Zilla was seen strolling along a golf course. American Alligators have been known to grow huge in size, with the biggest ever captured in Florida an eyewatering 5.31 meters long. And the mo-nster didn’t look far off that enormous measurement. Social media users were left in a-we, with some even making comparisons to a certain fictional monster. One wrote: “Godzilla lives in Naples!”
