A minivan driving on a north carolina highway hit and killed an alligator — and it was a whopper.
You have to see this — this male alligator is nearly 12 feet long and weighs almost seven hundred pounds!
You can see here, it’s almost as long as a police cruiser.
It happened near the alligator river national wildlife refuge in dare county.
Wildlife officials say the alligator appears to be similar in size to a large male that was regularly observed at the refuge.
They’re examining one of the alligator’s bones to try to figure out how old it was.
