OCHOPEE, FL (WWSB) - Check out this awesome video of a big alligator taking a slow stroll down a Florida pathway!

The video was taken by Big Cypress Gallery Adventures in Ochopee.

According to the organization, the gator's name is Snaggletooth and he has "a black scarred hide and symmetrically lined rows of bony ridges that cover most of his back. Measuring over 10 feet long, he may very well be over a quarter of a century old. He bears the distinctive feature of a large tooth that juts out abnormally from the right side of his lower jaw.

"He is now the subject of many photos and videos as he has earned a place of respect among those who work, live and visit the Big Cypress Gallery. Observed moving between remote gator ponds in the wilderness behind the gallery, this bull gator is likely the father of most alligators nearby.

He has only been seen traveling this property during late winter and spring, in time with the breeding season of alligators. And only during the end of a dry season when fish are confined to dwindling water sources, does his stature look so very robust and healthy."

Watch the video to see him in action!
