‘Jurassic Park’ Florida alligator video goes viral

A video showing a large alligator crossing in front of a tourist group in Polk County, Florida went viral over the weekend after it was posted on Facebook.

Facebook user Kim Joiner posted the video on Sunday, Jan. 15 to the Circle B Bar Reserve Polk Nature Discovery Center Facebook group with the caption, “I love Circle B. Nature at its best.”

By Monday night, the video featuring the gator, who according to the group’s Facebook post is known as “Humpback” at the reserve, had already been shared over 27,000 times.

The gator, Joiner told Orlando’s WKMG station, is at least 12 feet long and while there has been speculation online about the video being a hoax, Humpback, Joiner said, is very real.
