GAINSVILLE, Fla. — Two University of Florida students were shocked when this very hungry alligator crashed their picnic lunch.

Michael Tamayo told NBC News that he and a friend were having a picnic on the shore of Lake Alice when the alligator approached their blanket.

The unwelcome guest then proceeded to snatch up one of their sandwiches.

A bystander was able to capture footage of the hungry gator chowing down.

Tamayo said the gator was about 4 feet long.
