Jessica Miller, head naturalist at Fripp Island golf resort in South Carolina, captured footage of the 12ft American alligator last week before it went viral on social media.
Miller said she was expecting a much smaller creature when she got a phone call about an alligator going close to homes, before arriving to find a huge male prowling about.
Asked by the security team what to do, she replied: 'We're not going to do anything.' Moments later, the male slunk back into the bushes. (Daily Mail)
