SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. - A man visiting a Florida park recently captured video of a manatee chasing an alligator in the water.
Dennis Osha was at Myakka River State Park in Sarasota on Saturday when he spotted the playful chase.
"In Florida the gators share a lot of the same areas with the manatee so they peacefully coexist," Osha said.
Myakka River State Park consists of 37,000 acres making it one of the state's largest parks and is home to some of the best alligator sightings. Earlier this year, a woman captured photos of a 10-foot cold-stunned gator sitting with a large snook in its mouth that went viral.
