A terrifying video has surfaced on the internet of an enormous alligator strolling past tourists, and it's got everyone freaking out.

Measuring a whopping 12 feet long, the alligator spotted at Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland, Florida looked completely unfazed by locals snapping photos as he strolled from out of the woodland.
