Sharon Whiting says she had been watching the alligator family since the alligator had her babies in February.

Whiting finally saw the gator moving her babies across the golf course and took out her smartphone camera.

"It took her all day as she had golfers to contend with," Whiting told FOX 13. "I stayed and videotaped them, hiding behind the palm trees," Whiting said.

The gator and babies made it safely across.
