A 13-foot-long reptile is no match for 10-year-old Ella Hawk.

While out hunting with her father, Tony Hawk, Ella shot and killed an 800-pound alligator on the Guadalupe River in Texas.

“I wasn’t scared, but I was nervous,” Ella told “Fox and Friends.”

The young girl used a crossbow to fire a shot that struck the animal between its eyes.

“We knew it was a big alligator, but we had no idea ‘til we got down to it to bring it out of the river how big it really was,” her father said.

According to Victoria Advocate, the kill ranks No. 1 in the Trophy Game Records of the World’s database, and it puts Ella in a position to win the Trophy Game Records of the World's Huntress of the Year Award, which she also won last year.

Daily Mail posted numerous photos of Ella with the dead gator as well as other photos of Ella and her other kills, including deer and fish. 

Ella’s parents are also seasoned hunters
