We all know that in Florida, where there is fresh water, there could be a gator lurking, and in Polk County, this one had some pretty impressive moves as it climbed into a fenced-in area.

Selina Philips posted the video on Facebook that she took at the Circle B Bar Reserve near Lakeland where the gator used a bench to hoist itself up and over the fence.

One comment by Tara Brogan reads “β€œOh great. My β€˜irrational’ fear of walking down a boardwalk to find an alligator at the end was just justified.” Another by Elizabeth Ross says “If they learn how to open doors, we’re in trouble.”
