A massive alligator crossed in front of a group of tourists at a Florida nature center over the weekend, and it was all caught on camera.

Kim Joiner captured the video at Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland on Sunday and uploaded it to Facebook.

She told WFLA.com that she and other people at the preserve saw the gator headed their way and everyone pulled out their cell phones to record it.

“Very exciting to see,” she said.

Joiner estimated that the gator was about 12 feet long.
