Giant 'dinosaur-looking’ gator found on Florida golf course (PHOTOS)

A terrifying dinosaur-size alligator found crawling on a Florida golf course has left even the most experienced Sunshine State golfers running for the 19th hole.

The giant prehistoric-looking gator was spotted last weekend at the Myakka Pines Golf Club near the Gulf Coast, moving from one pond to another, the Englewood club posted on Facebook.

The gator, estimated to be about 13-feet long, has been calling the golf course home for the last week,  said Myakka Pines general manager Mickie Zada.

Its "monster" size has prompted a debate amongst social media users questioning if it was real on the Myakka alligator Twitter page.

An even larger gator called "Big George" had lived on the golf course for a decade before he died, according to Zada. The 15-foot animal and the one who seems to have replaced him aren't threats to golfers.

Myakka Pines has been alligator-incident free for nearly 40 years.

"We just tell people don't look for your golf balls around here," Zada said.
