Record-Breaking Alligator Captured in Florida

Tres Ammerman was amazed when he caught a 14' alligator on Halloween, 2010. The gator, weighing-in at just over 654-lbs., is believed to be between 50 and 60 years old. Ammerman's catch is 3" longer than the state record, which was set in 1997. Ammerman is selling his catch to a taxidermist at $1000 per foot, for a net of $14,000 USD.

The largest alligator on record was caught in Louisiana and measured 19'.
