Crocodile fiercely gallops towards man.

A terrifying footage of a Cuban crocodile racing towards a man in an enclosure has been doing the rounds online. The video was shared on Facebook by a theme park and wildlife preserve in the United States. Shared on August 18, the video has already collected nearly 1.3 million views and over 7,500 likes.

As maintained by the social media post, the clip features the crocodile named Chainsaw. The huge reptile was recorded running rapidly around his enclosure in Gatorland Orlando. “CHAINSAW IN ACTION. Our Amazing Cuban Crocodile!” the caption read.

In the video, a man, who is also in the enclosure, was seen running away from the crocodile.

“As a Floridian, this might be the most terrifying thing I've ever seen,” wrote one user in the comment section. “Wow ... I have never seen a gator actually almost gallop run.. Amazing!” added another.

A third user said, “I can't stop watching this! Incredible and frightening at the same time!” “The stuff from which nightmares are made!” commented fourth.

A Facebook user even elucidated, “Gators ambush predators and have the ability to move really fast but only for a short amount of time. So don't expect them to stalk you for very long or at least on land. They conserve energy first and foremost.”

In the meantime, as per Newsweek, Cuban crocodiles grow up to 10 feet long. Even though they have short legs, the species can run at speeds of 15 to 22 mph. They can cover up to 100 feet when they run, but as they tire easily they do not hunt this way.
