Alligator Sneaks Up On Group Of Friends In Terrifying Video

Alligator Sneaks Up On Group Of Friends In Terrifying Video

A woman has shared the shocking moment she spotted a huge alligator calmly staring at her from just feet away. You can see the scary clip here:


TikTok user Jade - or @capecoral.jade - uploaded a clip she filmed while out fishing with a group of friends in the Florida Everglades.

Jade is filming one of her friends who is standing with a fishing line in the water and seems to be attempting to find an alligator they had seen previously.


Jade can be heard asking: "Where did he go?" as she zooms in on the water.

She then jokingly says: "He said 'that's plastic'."

However, she's then left horrified when she realises the alligator is just feet away from her, camouflaged by the water.

At this point, Jade, understandably, lets out a scream and yells to her pals: "Oh my god, holy s***."

While another member of the group adds: "That's why you do not ever sit down with your legs in the water."

Jade says: "I'm not kidding, I almost s*** myself."

She can then be heard laughing, while saying: "OK OK" and slowly backing away.


Posting the clip, Jade wrote: "Florida Everglades never fails to amuse and terrify."

And fellow TikTok users were quick to agree - commenting on the clip, one person said: "I was watching that screaming 'it's right there!' like y'all can hear me."

Another wrote: "That gator could have jumped and bit you in 0.5 seconds. You're very lucky."

While a third person advised: "Y'all have to assume that every body of water in Florida might have gator in it. Stay safe."

And it's pretty good advice, because earlier this year, a fellow Floridian was chased by a huge alligator while out fishing.

Tommy Lee was tarpon fishing in the Everglades at sunrise on 8 May when the reptile bobbed its head above the surface.

A horrified Tommy decided the best course of action was to get the hell out of there as quickly as possible, with the 11-foot gator in hot pursuit.


The 22-year-old's GoPro footage captures him taking a tumble as the huge beast pursued him.

Having made it a safe distance from the gator, Tommy concluded: "Well, that puts an end to my tarpon fishing."

Thankfully, the alligator appeared to get bored and soon returned to the water.
