A giant alligator carrying a smaller gator in its mouth stunned onlookers in Florida.

Julie Smith of Lakeland posted video on March 8 that shows the larger gator, named "Grandpappy," dragging the smaller reptile, locked in its snout, across a lawn.

"Oh my god, put that gator down," a woman can be heard shouting in the video.
