Giant alligator is back at Florida golf course, and he’s hungry

Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood posted photos of the gator the staff calls “Goliath” (good name for him) on the golf course’s Facebook page. This time, the big guy is apparently in the process of devouring a turtle.

Goliath gained national attention earlier this month when it showed up on the course and then on its Facebook page. Many questioned if the photos of him were real.

The alligator got its name — Goliath — as a result of a contest the club put on. The gator is 12-13 feet long.

Lots of people are asking what alligators eat...here is Goliath having a turtle for breakfast. (Sorta nasty to see but it's the reality of wild animals)
