While riding his bike through the swampy trails of South Florida, Walt Jenkins stumbled upon a surprising sight: two massive alligators blocking his path. Instead of panicking, Jenkins stayed calm, recognizing that the alligators were just chilling out. He even joked, “so this should be fun.” His reaction was caught on video and shared on Instagram.

In the footage, Jenkins calmly navigates the encounter as he heads back to his vehicle. He clarifies in the caption that it’s mating season for alligators, urging him to exercise caution, particularly around the larger male. Successfully coaxing the female to move aside and observing the male’s tranquility, Jenkins proceeds cautiously, mindful of their potent tail movements.
