Is Kellan Lutz playing Crocodile Dundee?

The Twilight actor had a macho moment with an alligator during a recent trip to the Florida Everglades. Wearing a rugged look and a fierce expression, the actor gripped a black alligator that was wrapped around his neck and over his shoulders.

"With an American alligator -4foot individual about a teenager," he Tweeted on Monday. "It's nesting season now for these guys!"

Lutz, 27, is in Florida with GQ and Lacoste to bring attention to the work of the Everglades Foundation, a conservation group that works to protect the Everglades.

"Such beautiful animals!" he wrote. "True dinosaurs. Help us protect them."
