Monster alligator emerges from tropical storm Eta. Was Jurassic Park simply getting actual?
A dinosaur-sized alligator won over social media Jurassic Park is real. The massive alligator was discovered on a golf course in Naples, Florida. Tropical Storm Eta is believed to be the reason the Gator was walking the golf course. The video of the reptile stocking on the green has since gone viral where golfers can say, “Holy shit … this guy is out for a walk – oh my god!” This isn’t your ordinary Florida Gator sighting as you can see below.
When the video of the massive alligator began to spread, it was only a matter of time before the jokes about Jurassic Park began. One Twitter user said, “Jurassic Park is real and it’s in Florida,” which sounds about right. If the fictional park were a real thing, Florida would most likely be the place it’s built and where the dinosaurs break free and take over the rest of North America. Another person on social media writes, “Look at this giant alligator walking around the Valencia golf course in Naples. It looks like it belongs in Jurassic Park!”
The dinosaur-sized alligator is believed to be around 3 meters long and extremely large. If it were to walk on its back legs it would be like a baby T-Rex, or maybe even Godzilla. “We are only one mutation away in Jurassic Park,” said one person on Twitter. “By the end of the year, these things are sprinting on their hind legs [and] so what? “If dinosaurs roamed the earth again, 2020 would be the year it wouldn’t surprise anyone.
The video of the alligator has some people calling false news, but it’s the real deal. “This is not an alligator, this is a dinosaur. Trust me, I’ve seen every Jurassic Park movie multiple times. I’m pretty much a paleontologist,” one social media user promised. “Not now in 2020. Let’s skip the Jurassic Park saga,” another person pleaded on Twitter. There is a lot going on in the world right now, and how dinosaurs are dealt with is not exactly what we need in 2020, even if it would be kind of neat.
Of course, Jurassic Park in Florida isn’t a real thing, but the alligator footage still has plenty of people cracking it. “Who turned Florida into a real Jurassic Park on their 2020 Bingo Card?” Alligators first appeared about 37 million years ago in the Oligocene and are mainly found in North America, China, and Mexico. Larger males, like the one discovered in the viral video, often spend their time alone, while the younger alligators all hang out together killing small prey. You can watch some video footage of the Florida alligator the size of a dinosaur above thanks to YouTube channel NBC News2.

This is not an alligator, this is a dinosaur. Trust me, I’ve seen every Jurassic Park movie multiple times. I’m pretty much a paleontologist. https://t.co/DriK3qiruE

It’s not a dinosaur. This is a Deinosuchus that fed on dinosaurs. I’ve also seen every Jurassic Park movie multiple times. I know my way. 🙂 pic.twitter.com/dhhs1MSvZU

I know everyone is talking about how this Jurassic Park alligator came from, but I just want to say that there is a 1980 film out there that specifically deals with this scenario. pic.twitter.com/79PYpGB00M
