The Longwood homeowner said the gator was stuck in the net for about 45 minutes.

The homeowner captured video of the beast as it made its way out of the net and into nearby woods.

“God, he is huge,” the homeowner can be heard saying on the video.

The homeowner thinks the gator was interested in a dead snake that was also caught in the net (photo below), but the big boy didn’t get to enjoy the snake as a meal.
