The internet was calling it fake, but wildlife experts who were on the scene have confirmed that the gator was in fact, real. It's rare that a gator can get this big in Georgia because they have certain months you can gator hunt.

Officials got a call from farmer who said that there was a massive alligator that he THOUGHT was 11 or 12 feet.

Turns out, the gator they found in an irrigation ditch was  13 feet 4 inches long weighing 700-750 pounds. It had a chest girth of 57 inches, too.

Officials say that the alligator had several previous injuries — including what appeared to be old gunshot wounds — when he was found. Due to his poor conditions and old age, the team decided to euthanize him.
