  1. While golfing today I saw this bad ass, big alligator. Probably 10-11 feet long.

    How old would it have to be to be that big?

  2. Thats awesome, gators are amazing creatures, Fucking scarrry too:bongin:
    Theres alot of those things in the swamps and marshes around me :eek:
    Here's the best I could find on Size vs age:

    "Alligators reach breeding maturity at about 6 to 10 years of age, at which time they are about 6 to 7 feet long. From then on, growth continues at a slower rate. The oldest males may grow to be 16 feet long and weigh up to 1,200 pounds during a lifespan of 30 or more years."



    Sounds like your gator was over 10 years, and maybe alot more than that if growth truly does slow. That was a big mug. 10-11 feet?! Holy shit.
     

  3. Reminds me of when I lived in Florida. Gators, Snakes, and Peacocks. :smoking:
     
  4. Awesome!

    Biggest I've seen were like 14 inches in aquariums.
     
  5. Was the inevitable Chubbs joke told at any point?
     
  6. Did you try to hit it with your golf balls?
     
  7. Its trying to stay low and blend in, but the the cut grass isn't helping its cause to eat some golfers I guess
     
  8. haha thatss so cool
     
  9. Dude that is sketchy a gator can run 30 mph. Or at least that's what they said on swamp people.
     
  10. Dude if a gator ran at me 30 mph while I was golfing, it would regret it..


    Hand me the 9 iron :cool:
     
  11. Don't think your going to get far with a 9 iron against a crock :p

    Hand me the 12 gauge:devious::smoke:
     
  12. That gator would make some nice boots.
