This is one alligator we wouldn't want to see later!
The Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood, Florida sometimes has a 13-ft reptile visitor every now and then, and this past Thursday the alligator named Goliath made a return to its stomping fair grounds.
But the alligator wasn't alone.

Goliath was spotted snacking on a really big turtle and the alligator did it in front of all the golfers on the course with no shame!
Here's what the Myakka Pines Golf Club wrote on their Facebook page
It's currently alligator hunting season in Florida and two men, Keith Kelley & Kelly Sziy, just bagged a BIG one!
The gator, which they named Lumpy, was 13-feet, four-inches-long and weighed 765-pounds!! That's nutso!
Craziest part? They did it all bare handed!! They only had a rope, some hooks and their raw manliness!
This is a situation where you should DEFINITELY quit your day job!
Martha Rivera is just your average, ordinary Florida mom juggling her work at the Everglades Outpost Wildlife Rescue with her trips to soccer practice for her 8-year-old son!
Oh, and did we mention that she wrestles gators for tips? Or that she's 7 months pregnant?!? OR the fact that she apparently doesn't know of the term "maternity leave" because she's STILL wrestling gators despite her delicious bun in the oven!!!
Celebrity photographer Tyler Shields never ceases to shock and amaze!!
Most recently, he's been working on his Indulgence series, set to be shown at the Guy Hepner gallery in Los Angeles and the Imitate Modern gallery in London.
And he toyed around with some extremely dangerous ideas to make the series as epic as possible!
Tyler got model Ana Mulvoy Ten to wrestle an expensive crocodile Hermes birkin bag out of an alligator's mouth, first with a long pole and then with her teeth. Talk about risky business!!

When a Florida sheriff's deputy spotted an elderly bull fallen on its side in a river, she immediately sprung into action.
Deputy Christina Ammons dove into alligator infested water and held the bull's head above the surface until help arrived.
She had to wait for 45 minutes until
Seriously, that snake vs. crocodile thing we posted earlier this week was NUTS. This hasn't been a great time for giant reptiles!
Now we have to endure this??
Actually, this is kinda adorable. Is that bad to say?
Yeah, basically — because otters are often the best predators in many freshwater habitats. That means they have no natural predators of their own, and rule with a soft paw and iron jaw.
Apparently the otter even pulled the juvenile gator up onto a bank and straight up ate it after these pics, "as evidenced by crunching noises."
Still, kinda cute right? We can't help it!
