WATCH: Alligator gets a back scratch

Apparently, even alligators can get a bit itchy every once in a while.

And sometimes, it can be tough to scratch those hard-to-reach places.

So, when a massive gator in the Everglades Holiday Park needed some assistance a good Samaritan stepped in. 

Gabby Nikolle grabbed a broom and began rubbing the bristles along the alligator’s back.

She scratched and scratched, and the gator loved it! 

In the video shared by @francisferox on Instagram, you can see the gator seems to be grinning, even showing its full teeth towards the end.  

The clip is now trending on Facebook garnering over 33,000 shares since Monday.
