Just another video of someone surprised that alligators exist.  

Stephen McMillan was visiting from Scotland and fishing for bass in a lake near Kissimmee, Florida, when he inadvertently caught a 6-foot alligator instead. 



As you can see in video above, a very excited McMillan reels in the gator and lets out a few indiscernible Scottish words.

Please, do yourself a favor and watch this clip with closed captioning on. 



Also, what's the deal with that turtle?
