A mammoth alligator is breaking records in Alabama.
Five members of the Stokes family caught this monster alligator Saturday in Thomaston, Alabama.
It took them 10 hours to wrangle the mammoth beast.
Biologists at Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries easily measured the alligator at 15 feet, but weighing it was a big more tricky.
The alligator was so large it destroyed the winch used to lift average-sized alligators.
Eventually, a biologist had to use a backhoe to lift the alligator onto the scale.
It weighed in at 1,011.5 pounds, making the gator the largest ever killed in Alabama.
