The man filming was an idiot for getting as close as he did, and also for holding a video camera the wrong way. What did he think - everyone would turn their monitors on their sides?

If FL gators are as fast as TX gators, ya have a tough time outrunning one on dry land and worse in muck. Saw one take off after a guy and luckily the guy jumped into a nearby pickup truck bed.

What exactly do you want animal control to do? They do nothing with gators, they will only call a licensed trapper... either way calling the front office will only confirm what they know which is .. there are gators in Florida... surprise surprise!!

This is why when in Flordia I always try to play the fairways. It is obvious the guy filming has never seen a gatror run or leap out of the water in a micro second to grab a dog or goose that wandered too close to the bank. Don't confuse stupidity with bravery. He is lucky that after the wrestling broke off both gators did not opt for the tasty snack standing right in front of them.

Awesome video. For those "uninitiated" folks that think the camera man got too close I say sprout a pair and enjoy the rush. And for the "enlightened" ones who think that dis-liking the dictator in chief is racist because he is black the best thing I can say is you're a racist and sexist. Something you have left out is the fact that bozo's mother is white. He's mulatto, so you're wrong about him being black and you've completely negated his mother. Wow, racist and sexist. Shame on you. ROFL.

I once laid down right beside a 7ft. gator without knowing it. I was running sprinkler pipes through and underneath some bamboo. My wife walks up and screams. I turned over, saw the gator..and did an impossible back spring manuever and next thing i know, was half way across the yard. The gator was as startled as I was, and ran at a gallop to the creek we live on. I have lived in Florida around gators all my life. I have even caught them while fishg with live bait, but nothing prepares you for something like that. It would have been a million dollar (three stooges genre) video.

Mating, fighting for territory rights, same thing. A lot of my friends who got married ended up fighting for territory rights a few years afterward anyway. Gators are smarter than us because they do it without lawyers.

I appreciate this great video. I read some of the posts on here. Many are very critical and bash the guy for being stupid. I respect the guy for having guts. There are too many men in this world without testicles. And by the way, one should never forget who really is the apex predator in this video. Humans are the most dangerous thing that ever walked this planet. Alligators will typically avoid humans if possible. They retreated to the water not because their contest was over but because of the humans in close proximity. They recognize what we truly are even if we sometimes forget.
