Both Floridians AND non-Floridians understand that the Sunshine State is also home to many alligators. The reptiles can be found in any water reservoir – ponds, lakes, and swamps all around the state, though every once in awhile they turn up in the most unexpected of places.
A terrifying video has emerged shot on a pond in Florida of an alligator leaping out of the water to try and bite a woman passing overhead on a zipline.
The clip is probably shot during one of those adventurous tours, where you get to see yourself perform an extreme sport of some kind and take the recording home with you as memento. A woman is strapped and ready to go on a zipline station and she releases, not knowing what is lurking in the murky waters down below.
Just as she is about to reach the end of the line, the gator opens its huge mouth and jumps from the pond, hoping to get a snack. Naturally, the woman is scared witless, but as she gathers herself, she starts screaming in excitement, as so does the rest of her group!
“This video was taken as a group of zipline instructors were trying out a new zip line that passed directly over an alligator pond,” the filmer wrote online.
“Needless to say, this new zipline route has never been put in service,” he added.
