Lakeland, FL (WFTS) — A video taken by Kim Joiner of a HUGE gator is going viral on Facebook right now.
Joiner took the video at Circle B in Lakeland, Florida on Marsh Rabbit Run on Sunday, January 15. She posted the video to the Circle B Bar Reserve – Polk Nature Discovery Center Facebook page on Sunday.
The gator is gigantic and it is all the talk online.
Another couple out hiking at Circle B at the same time over the weekend had their still cameras ready on the opposite side of Joiner.
“It was just awe-inspiring,” said Kirsti Buckley about the experience.
She captured more than a dozen pictures of the experience.
“It does look pre-historic… and just watching his feet flop as they hit the ground is amazing. In my imagination I could feel the ground shake,” she said.
Ever since we posted the video on our Facebook page, Circle B has filled up with people searching for the massive reptile. The parking lot is packed with people trying to catch a glimpse of the big guy.
