Maybe this is Spurrier's pet.
Wow...12 ft at least!
Measures almost across both lanes of traffic.
Never have seen a big gator shaped like that. No girth, no jowels and a narrow/long tail. Weird.
That big ole gator is shaped weird, he should have a huge head and jaws, and he looks really thin to be so long.
The width of the traffic lane on most highways is right around 11 feet, so yeah, probably 14 feet or so.
I never seen a Gator in SC, although I do know they live up there. Is it possible, the don't get as fat up there? I am sure they are not as active in the winter.
Here's a weasel in Ohio:
Me either. I've seen some 10-12 footers in Naples and Gainesville, but they were pretty fat. That kind of looked like a croc.
They are common Here in Coastal NC. Just not that big generally. Pretty much any freshwater will have them.
Golf courses, big lakes, Cape Fear River is full of them. Some even in the brackish inlets and swamps...I dont see them like when I lived in Florida, but it is not uncommon.
Also the footage here on our local news seemed to show the gator fatter. The vids on YouTube seemed stretched.
Makes sense. YT video sure looks strange, as does the "gator". Big gators are (well) big.

A more accurate still shot. Those vids are stretched:
..and its a Gator not a croc. No crocs around here.

Good job, tilly! Alligator.
Photo is stretched. Really a hamster.
That Gator is Huge.
This one hits home as it is within ten minutes of where I live.
If you want to see some big gators, just go to any of the golf courses here in the Myrtle Beach area. We also have a state park near where this gator was spotted which has a lagoon full of them. This one was probably taking an excursion from that lagoon.
