(Meredith) -- A jaw-dropping video shows Florida wildlife officials hauling away a massive 10-foot-long alligator found hiding under a parked car. 
 
Someone discovered the monster reptile at an apartment complex in Tampa and called authorities on March 31, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. 
 
"The caller advised there was a pond nearby, but this was no small gator," the sheriff's office wrote in a Facebook post. 
 
Deputies and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) responded to the call and dispatched a contracted alligator trapper to transport the animal to an alligator farm. 
 
A deputy's body camera video shows at least three people hauling the alligator away. Bystanders also recorded videos, some of which have made the rounds on social media. 
 
"You may have seen this gator in a few viral TikToks recently, but it doesn’t get better than this angle from Deputy Wheaton’s body cam!" the sheriff's office wrote. 
 
The gator was not harmed, and no one was injured.
