In a video from a Georgia golf course at the Savannah Harbor, a mammoth alligator is seen walking around the first green.
In a similar video, taken at the Buffalo Creek Golf Club in Florida this week, another fearfully large ‘gator is seen casually crossing the green, headed for the lake.
Alligators, despite their intimidating appearance, are not likely to chase a human for a long distance on dry land or attack at all, as they prefer smaller prey which they can devour quickly. Large reptiles are patient hunters who prefer an easy meal, and will generally abandon anything that puts up a fight.
An alligator’s diet consists mainly of crawfish, small snakes and turtles, and they do not pose much of a threat to pets, under normal circumstances.
