It is a big gator to be sure but the pict has a perspective trick to it. The gator is closer to the camera than the guys standing "next to it" you can see the are standing next to the stabiliser of the backhoe, while the arm of the backhoe is extended toward the camera. But 800 lbs isn't a small gator either =)
