Goliath, our favorite 15-foot gator, is back in the news. This time, instead of just roaming Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood, Fla., Goliath was guarding the property -- against another gator.

Take a look at these photos taken by Lynn Sarles, a golfer who happened to be on the course when another gator dared to challenge Goliath's authority. We wish Lynn had taken a video, but beggars can't be choosers. Here's Goliath climbing out of the water:


Here's Goliath stalking his opponent:

Lynn says Goliath was an easy winner of the fight. Shocking.


Well done, Goliath, you magnificent beast.
