At least 50 gators spotted in Florida pond


WINTER HAVEN, FL (CNN/WKMG) — The only thing you could hear is the birds chirping as a group of cyclists watch a huge group of gators in silence.

“It was just like in awe when we were watching them,” said Dennis Jones, who took the video. “I have never seen that many, I’ve seen maybe 10-15 in that pond before.”

Jones owns the Winter Garden Wheel Works Bike Shop and take groups out on the Lake Apopka loop at least once a week. “As we got closer there was more and more and more,” he said.

He posted the video to the shop’s Facebook page. It’s believed there were at least 50 gators in the pond. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
