The world is a much safer place today after two gigantic Alligators were pulled from the Mighty Mississippi River by a group of hunters. Both beasts measured over 13 f*****g feet in length and could probably kill sharks with their eyes closed.

These beasts are the stuff of nightmares, except they were real, which makes me wonder what else is out there.

More from NPR:

Two alligators, each weighing more than 720 pounds, were caught in Mississippi this past weekend, setting a new state record for heaviest male alligator. Both animals measured more than 13 feet in length; it took hours to get the trophies into the hunters’ boats.

The huge reptiles were brought down on the same day, setting a state record that stood for less than two hours before it was broken again.

“In the world of alligator hunting, anything can happen. But not even Nostradamus could have predicted how this opening weekend would unfold.” according to a report in The Clarion-Ledger.

It took more than an hour for Beth Trammell of Madison, Miss., and five others to catch their 723.5-pound gator in Issaquena County, which sits along the Mississippi River in the central portion of the state.

“I yelled ‘Oh my gosh we caught the Loch Ness Monster!’ ” Trammell tells ABC News. “It was totally unbelievable.”
