Did they conduct a thorough search of the social media platforms? Recommended search: "I was deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, bottom fishing with a heavy sinker and I reeled up this humongous alligator!"

Are you sure they didn't do this off the coast of Australia?

It lives off the coast of Australia. It swims over to the Gulf of Mexico for snacks.

Egad - that sounds like something from Shel Silverstein's or Roald Dahl's imagination.

Many people believe the kracken or maybe a giant squid is the huge deep sea predator that eats most anything including alligators, boats and, when it visits shallow waters, slow swimming people. Most who have encountered the creature just call whatever it is a "YIKES!" before never being heard from again.

I wasn't aware that there are no sharks or killer whales in the Gulf of Mexico.

On an unrelated note, cruise ships in the area are now featuring Alligator Jambalaya on their buffets.

It's obviously the Kraken. I know it's a long way from Greece, but....

Got to be Ben Affleck.

How old is Jennifer Lopez? Jen, are you listening out there? Written the same year you were born especially for you.

Greenland sharks have been seen in the Gulf, so that's probably what did it.

Unless of course, it's some sort of mutant creature resulting from all the refinery waste. Something that may have already made an appearance in a low-budget movie in the '50s.

The sea is very sensitive about its bottom.

Cthulu appreciates your sacrifice.

I think we know darn well what’s down there.
History shows again and again, how nature points out the folly of men…

I'll wait for the movie.

I must go down to the sea again,
to the lonely sea and the sky;
I left my shoes and socks there -
I wonder if they're dry?
