Fishing in gator country is serious business. 

The alpha predators of the area are just looking for something to grab.

Witness this catch and release angler who almost became a gator’s next meal.

LADbible shared a video on Facebook that should be a cautionary tale for any angler in alligator country. Don’t get lax in your carefulness or a dinosaur might eat you.

Whether it’s an alligator or a crocodile these massive predators lay in weight. They are hungry. It doesn’t matter if it is a deer, pet dog or even human. They will seize you as their next meal.

Be careful out there and always watchful for these prehistoric leftovers. Just under the surface of your favorite fishing hole might lurk the real life Jurassic Park.
