A massive creature that looked like it belonged in a children's dinosaur book was seen wandering around a Florida golf course this week.

A video posted to the Valencia Golf and Country Club Facebook page on Nov. 11 shows a ginormous alligator walking around the golf course in the rain.

It was "out enjoying the tropical conditions," the golf course reported.

The video has since gone viral, prompting some to question its legitimacy.

The video was originally taken by Tyler Stolting, who works at the course. He spotted the gator while driving a golf cart and grabbed a video of it.

In an interview with BBC, Stolting said he's never seen an alligator of that size before.

"Being here in Florida, we're pretty used to the chance of seeing one, so I was pretty comfortable. I know if you leave them alone, they leave you alone," he said in the interview.
