SOMERSBY, Australia, March 14 (UPI) -- The head of the Australian Reptile Park shared video of a baby alligator hatching from its egg in a style reminiscent of "a scene from Jurassic Park."

Tim Faulkner, general manager of the Australian Reptile Park, posted a video to Facebook showing the alligator emerging from its egg and taking its first steps on slime-covered legs.

The newborn alligator makes its first vocalizations before it is even visible through the cracked shell.

"Baby alligators hatching -- looks like a scene from Jurassic Park!!!" Faulkner wrote.
