When you go on vacation, it's important to learn as much about the area you're visiting as you can. The government of Canada regularly posts travel advisories for residents leaving the country, but some precautions are more mundane.
One of the more important but least talked about subjects to educate yourself on when travelling, for example, concerns the animals that can be found in the area, specifically dangerous or larger creatures.
This is one thing a Canadian couple visiting Florida might have wished they took into account after crossing paths with an enormous alligator.
TL;DR The video below shows a Canadian couple crossing paths with a giant alligator during their hike along a trail in Florida. The couple is clearly shocked by the massive reptile as it nonchalantly passes just a few meters in front of them. The alligator is famously known in the area as "Humpback."
According to The Weather Network, Richard and Kathy Faulkner were taking a walk along a Florida trail when the giant reptile casually strolled by, only a few feet away from Kathy's feet.

While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
