Shaw said she was paddling through the spring on her inflatable paddleboard when she came across the encounter.

“I was fascinated by the size of the alligator and the one it was eating,” Shaw said. “I wasn’t too scared because he was obviously busy, but when he went underwater I was a bit worried about where he was going to pop up.”

Shaw posted the video to a Facebook group called Alligators of Florida.
