LAKELAND, Fla. – And you thought dinosaurs were extinct.
Video of a massive alligator spotted in Lakeland, FL was posted to Facebook on Sunday, raising the eyebrows of many.
“It looks like a dinosaur,” News 6 anchor Justin Warmoth said.
“Is that real?” News 6 anchor Kirstin O’Connor asked upon first viewing the video.
