Two huge alligators were spotted in Florida recently — one on a golf course in Naples and another on a flooded road in Everglades National Park.
Tyler Stolting caught an alligator on video taking a stroll Wednesday, Nov. 11, at Valencia Golf & Country Club in Naples. The gator was at No. 17 on the course.

Valencia Golf & Country Club professional Jeff Jones sent this video of an alligator on No. 17 at the course on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2020. The video was filmed by Tyler Stolting.
Another alligator was seen crossing a flooded road at Everglades National Park.
Officials say it was probably searching for a new sunbathing spot.
“As a result from recent tropical weather, we are currently experiencing the highest water levels that we’ve seen since 1962 during this time of the year. And our water levels are still rising,” the Everglades National Park said in a Facebook post. “Wildlife in the area is adapting, too; alligators and snakes are moving and finding new spots to sun bathe.”

The rising flood waters made it easier for the gator to cross the road.
