If we needed proof that alligators were the only creatures to survive the meteor that took out all the dinosaurs, look no further.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t know if you could catch me dead near a pond, lake, swamp, hell… even a puddle, where alligators are present.
We’ve seen it time and time again. An 85-year-old woman was killed by a gator recently in Florida, after it jumped from a pond and attacked her dog.
These things are not to be messed with…
And this video right here? Pure insanity.
Florida Chief Meteorologist for WINK News, Matt Devitt, shared a video to Facebook of a MASSIVE alligator basically bending an aluminum fence so it could get through in Placida, Florida.
He said in the caption:
“Check out this big guy bend the aluminum bars and plow right through it this week in Placida.
He eventually got through according to the viewer who shot the video. Only in Florida!”
And perhaps the wildest part of the video is how easily the gator is able to do so.
Granted, aluminum isn’t the strongest thing in the world, but damn, this ol’ boy just powered his way through there.
Although the gator’s size was not shared, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that you could probably put a saddle on this thing and ride it into town (wouldn’t recommend).
They grow ’em different down there I guess.
