Giant gator turns heads in Lakeland

- A massive alligator catches the attention of hikers at the Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland.

Aryca Owens tells FOX 13 she was hiking at the Reserve with her husband when they saw others waiting for the giant gator to cross the road.  She grabbed her phone and started recording.

"It was a cool experience and I just wanted to share it with others," Owens said.

Other photographers were also busy getting pictures of the giant.

This isn't the first time giant alligators have gotten the attention of people at the Circle B Bar Reserve.

Last year a well-known alligator nicknamed "Humpback" impressed photographers with its size and the video went viral.
