'Just a Normal Stroll in Florida': Woman Finds Alligator on Trail

Evangeline Abraham had some company when she was out for a walk in Lakeland, where she came across a large alligator along the trial. “Just a normal stroll in Florida,” she said, alongside video of the encounter on TikTok.

“This gator was actually sleeping and dormant (since it was cold in the winter), and we were on the far side of the trail,” Abraham told Storyful.

The video, originally recorded in December 2021, went viral after being shared on TikTok earlier this month. Credit: Evangeline Abraham via Storyful
