This video provides a new meaning to the phrase 'course hazard', capturing the moment two alligators were caught in a snappy fight on the green.
A man can be heard saying “Oh my God” as one of the predators bites down on the others.
The fight seems to be brief, before the opponent wriggles to freedom, then the two strut off to a nearby lake.
The brief squabble happened last week at the Bobby Jones Golf Club, in Sarasota, Florida, as Barbara Mossop was playing a course.
The golf course took the opportunity to remind members to be careful of their surroundings in the video posted to Facebook Friday with the caption: "Gators Fighting (or Mating?) at Bobby Jones Golf Club".
However some Facebook users couldn’t help but find the humorous side to the video.
“If that was mating, that was some rough foreplay!” one person wrote.
"’Honey I told you to come home now get off this golf course!!!," joked another.
Another user wrote: “Another reason why I don't golf”
