Residents had their cameras rolling when a giant alligator was seen crossing the road in an upscale Naples community.
Cell phone video captured the massive reptile calmly crossing the street before parking itself on some plush grass.
The gator appears to have arrived at the Forest Glen Golf & Country Club from a nearby lake, which is not uncommon at this time of year.
Florida Fish and Wildlife approached the 9- to 10-foot gator and safely removed it from the community. There were no injuries.
