This is the extraordinary moment a group of diners got more than they bargained for when a greedy alligator gatecrashed their picnic looking for a BITE to eat.
Photographer, Rodney Cammauf, had just found a sunny spot by the water in Homestead, Florida to enjoy his alfresco lunch when the bizarre event unfolded.
The 68-year-old was tucking into a few burgers with friends when they spotted the giant alligator approaching them from out of the water.
The cunning creature rapidly descended upon the party leaving the host of frightened diners with nothing to do but run.
Alligators typically lurk around for fish, small mammals and birds but it looks like this one has a different meal in mind.
