A 920-pound alligator was recently found in Lake Eufaula in southeast Alabama. The 13-foot, six-inch gator was caught on August 14 by Center Point hunter Scott Evans, according to a AL.com report.

Alligator hunter Scott Evans was at Lake Eufaula with his pals, Justin and Jeff Gregg, when the 920-pound gator was spotted, WBNS 10-TV News said. The enormous alligator was weighed at the Dixon Lumber Company in Eufaula.

Richard Tharp, a wildlife biologist for the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, said the agency has not yet received any official paperwork on the 920-pound alligator so it cannot yet be determined if a new Lake Eufaula record catch has been set. The 13-foot, six-inch gator captured in the lake is currently the largest recorded harvest from Eufaula.
