A 10-foot-long monster gator was hauled away by trappers — after he was found under a car at a Florida apartment complex, according to a jaw-dropping video.

Wild footage shows several men in Tampa lifting the sharp-toothed behemoth into the back of a truck with his powerful mouth taped shut last week.

“This was no small gator…it was 10 feet 2 inches,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office posted on Twitter along with the footage.

Cops and wildlife officials rushed to the parking lot at around 8:45 a.m on March 31 after a caller reported seeing the rogue reptile crouching under a car, police said.

At least three people then hauled the giant critter into the bed of a pickup truck and closed the back panel, prompting cheers from onlookers.

Trappers safely hauled the animal to a nearby alligator farm, according to police.

The gator’s unexpected cameo may be due to spring mating season — when sightings sometimes skyrocket and males can become more aggressive, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
