WATCH: 16 Feet Monster Alligator Spotted Again In Florida (Video)

Florida Monster Alligator

Sage Stryczny

Chubbs, the infamous monster alligator, has been spotted again at Buffalo Creek Golf Course on Saturday, October 13.

In a video shared to Facebook by Sage Stryczny, the alligator was seen strolling across the grass about 50 feet away.

Stryczny told WFLA that he was with his dad when they “were about to hit off the tee on a par 3 and we saw him laying right on the green.” He said the first thing that went through his mind when he saw the gator was, “Holy crap, that’s a monster gator on the green.”

Chubbs didn’t scare Stryczny and his dad from their golf game and they continued to play with the monster gator not too far away.

“We were trying to golf, so we were within 50 feet of him after we hit our shots,” Stryczny said, who also believes the gator must have been on his way from a small pond to another larger pond. “He took a lot of rests.”

The Monster Gator Was Seen 2 Years Ago

Chubbs was last seen in 2016 when golfers in Palmetto, Florida were playing golf at the same golf course, while the then witness Charles Helms spotted Chubbs casually strolling across the course.

“People have heard that he is out here and that is all they want to see so they will bring spectators to ride so somebody can get a picture,” golf course employee Wendy Schofield told News 3 in 2016. “He doesn’t bother anybody and they don’t bother him, he’s like a mascot for the course, which is owned by Manatee County.”

“He has been here for a very, very long time, he’s not new at all. There have been guesses that he’s 15 to 16 feet long,” Schofield said. “The word has spread that this is a great place to come and play. He is the highlight, but we are worth the price, too.”

Besides Chubbs, the biggest alligator ever recorded in Florida was 14 feet long and 780 pounds.
