What A Gator Did To These Boaters In Florida Will Freak You Out

Tylor and Emerald Hindery of Missouri are vacationing in Florida this week and decided to take a guided airboat tour on Tuesday near Daytona Beach. Everything was going swimmingly until the boat floated into a mud bank, right next to a huge alligator that was sunning itself.

“You can reach out and slap him, can’t you?” the guide said jokingly to the couple as he tried to free the boat from the bank. Seconds later, there was chaos. Just watch below:

Pretty freaky, right? I probably would have jumped right off the boat.

This is far from the only crazy recent wildlife encounter in Florida. Check out what happened to this one woman who was visiting Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in Naples last year.
