13.5 Foot, 920 lb Alligator Caught By Dad, Teen Son And Guide


EUFAULA, AL  — An alligator in Alabama is so big, it looks like something from Jurassic World!

Three friends caught it earlier this month.

It’s 13 feet 6 inches long and weighs 920 pounds…making it the second largest gator caught in the state.


It took 6 people to wrestle the monster into the boat on Lake Eufaula.

“We went out with the intention of only catching a large alligator,” Gregg told WSFA-TV. “My son Justin and I were watching the Perseid meteor shower when he caught him.”

Gregg told the TV station that they’ve harvested 230 pounds of meat from gator – and the hide will be displayed by a taxidermist.

Scott Evans, of Center Point, was the guide who helped, the NBC station reported.
