A South Carolina family snagged a 12-foot alligator on Lake Moultrie earlier this week.

Hali Lane tells WCSC-TV that she, her father Chris, and Uncle John Lane were alligator hunting around 11:00 p.m. when she spotted the humongous swamp dragon. The 16-year-old Hali said that all three family members got a hook into the gator and that they all shared the chore of pulling him close enough to the boat where he could be shot. Hali was vague on who actually shot the reptile, but adamant that a 12 foot alligator is big!

Alligator season in South Carolina runs through October 13.
