A woman has gone viral on TikTok after sharing the terrifying moment an Alligator snuck up without her realising.
Some of TikTok’s most-viewed videos detail dangerous situations between animals and people.
Back in June, a California teen went viral after pushing a bear off her garden wall with her bare hands to save her dogs.
Now, a TikTok user has taken over the internet thanks to her horrifying encounter with an Alligator.
Alligator sneaks up on woman in viral TikTok
On Tuesday (August 10th), a TikTok user called @capecoral.jade shared a video that’s already had over 21 million views.
In the clip, Jade is filming whilst she and a group of friends are fishing in the Florida Everglades.
A man who she refers to as Joey is standing with a fishing line trying to encourage an alligator, which they had previously seen, to come back.
“Where did he go?” she asks whilst zooming in on the water and joking: “He said ‘that’s plastic’.”
Suddenly, she realises that the Alligator has actually always been there, and is directly below her, camouflaged in the water.
After letting out a very loud scream, she shouts “oh my god, holy sh*t” and her friend adds: “That’s why you do not ever sit down with your legs in the water.”
“I’m not kidding I almost sh*t myself,” she says as she backs up away from the reptile.
TikTok users react to the video
The video has gone viral on TikTok, and it seems as though most people actually noticed the Gator in the water before they did.
One person wrote: “I was waiting for them to notice because I was looking at the Gator looking at me.”
“Who else saw it before they did?” said another.
A third person added: “I was like ‘so I guess they don’t care about the Gator peeping them’. Then I realised ya’ll had no idea.”
Others found the video absolutely terrifying.
“Do ya’ll know how fast those things can run? No sir. I would have been in the car across state lines,” one person wrote.
Another said: “Omg! They didn’t even notice it, that’s so scary.”
