'28 ft Monster Alligator' Caught in Florida

'28 ft Monster Alligator' Caught in Florida

The helicopter pilot and the game wardens on the ground were in communication via 2-way radios.
Here is a transcript of their conversation.
'Air1, have you a visual on the gator, Over'
'Approaching inlet now, Over'
'Roger Air1'
'Gator sighted. Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth....moving in, over'
'Roger Air1'
'Oh Crap it's a Deer!'
'Confirm Air1.. Did you say Deer?, Over'
'Roger.........a Deer in it's mouth....looks like a full sized buck....that's a big gator, boys.  We're gonna need more men, Over'
'Roger Air1.....can you give me a idea on size of animal, over'
'Its a big one.....25 feet at least, please advise, gator is heading to inlet....do I pursue?, over'

That has to be a HUGE gator to have a whole deer in its mouth!
The deer was later found to be a mature Stag.
If you ski at the west end of the lake ---- try not to fall overboard.

This alligator was found between  Lakeland and  Winter Haven  Florida near the house of Anita and Charlie Rogers, who could hear the beast bellowing in the night.
Their neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations.
'I didn't believe it,' Charles Rogers said, but after the alligator was killed, they realized the stories were, if anything, understated.
Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator.  Joe Goff, a 6'5" tall game warden, shown below, walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch long alligator that he helped shoot and kill in the  Rogers ' back yard.

  2. the alligator in the water with the deer is not a hoax, the 28 ft one IS a hoax. The 28 foot 'gator was bad photoshop. The biggest 'gator ever recorded was 19 feet 6 inches and shot in Louisiana in 1890. The biggest in recent years was about 15 feet.
    The only crocodilian reliably measured at over 28 feet was a 28 foot 4 inch Indo-pacific croc."

    2. There's probably no deer there because the alligator ate it. :)

    3. It wouldn't surprise me if that photo was taken a bit further South. A 15-foot gator with a key deer in its mouth easily looks about 30 feet long.

    1. That's interesting. Of course, I've seen the same statement made by a guy in Texas and another in Alabama, where that same photo has been used to represent "monster alligators" killed in those states. Sorry, you can't all be right and I strongly suspect none of you are.

  6. The largest alligator recorded was only 15 feet 3 inches, the largest crocodile was 33 feet.This picture is a fraud.I know my stuff so trust me.

  7. hoax this!! Florida has a lot of big ones too and don't forget the snake that ate the gator. A picture is worth a thousand words and you can find both online. So take your chances...

  8. I am very experienced with reptiles I have studied well.There has never been any gator that has ever exeeded 19 feet.This picture is just a fraud.The largest croc was acurately measured at 28 feet and the largest gator 19 feet,so thereare huge diffrences.

  9. Crocs are much stronger than gators.I watched a video of a gator and croc with a tomato in their mouths and the gator coulden't even dent it but the croc crushed it flat.(they were both babys)Adult crocs have a bite force of 3 tons per sq.in but the gator only 900 kilos per sq.in.

    1. THERE ARE NO ALLIGATORS IN THE PHILLIPINES. THAT WAS ONLY A 20 FOOT ESTUARINE CROC NOT A GATOR. I KNOW MY STUFF WELL. BETTER RESEARCH BEFORE YOU POST SUCH IGNORANT COMMENTS.

  11. You people need to talk to some of the real old men that killed gators ilagley years ago they could tell you some storys. I have seen one in cherry lake Fl. from the shore line 1/2 way across there was a gator from the way he looked to be at least 15ft. or better

  12. The photo's fake... Plain as day... The alligator should be casting a shadow... Where's the shadow??...

    ReplyDelete
  13. This definately a hoax. Its head is OVERSIZED!
    Alligator heads are only 1/12 of their body length.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well that picture is definately real. look at the sunlight on the back of the man, it matches the sunlight on the gator. The shadow of the alligator should be a foot or two below the image and you can see the shadow of the strap that is wrapped around its tail and hooked to the truck.

    If you see an oversize gator don't tell anyone, somebody will kill it.

  16. Man that's my pet his name is reptar like from the rug rats he was my best friend . I can't believe somebody would kill him and lynch him like this . He never hurt anybody , he was a vegetarian

  17. if it is a real gator why hasn't the local news played it I live in Sarasota and think I would heard something from the local news or the paper or something

  18. I don't think a rubber tire combo would even lift a 28 ft gator. I think it would tip first, especially stretched out like that.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Measure the man, then put it against the alligator!!
    This is no bigger than 18 foot. If it was 28 then the man would have to be 9ft tall.

  20. oops meant 28ft as people have been saying!!!! Total RUBBISH
