What I really love about Florida!

Seriously!

After living in Europe and returning "home" for the holidays to Florida, I really miss all the bugs, snakes, gators, birds, and other wildlife!

I even brought back to Paris for my colleagues some "alligator jerky"... You can bet they were surprised! Not the usual French gourmet cuisine they're used to!

Now, this is scary. I'd always be afraid one would come out of the water and get me.

I know what you mean, Michael - in Paris my biggest predator was a pooping pigeon! Not enough stimulation for me;-)

Linda, this little guy would not harm you, but I would not let your small pet run loose around here:-(

That gator is absolutely adorable!

tres belle photo, il doit se sentir seul le petit alligtor, mais je pense pas que je partagerai ma baignoire avec lui ;o)


very beautiful photograph, it must feel only small the alligtor, but I do not think that I will divide my bath-tub with him ;o)

This photo makes me laugh. He looks so human sitting there alone. How big is this guy?

Cool photo! Sometimes it looks best to get a long shot rather than a close up. This is proof.

Did you read about all those people who were eaten by alligators last summer? I just couldn't live that close to them...even if they so say it's rare.

I remember sharing a campground with a gator when I was a child. There was a sign but the campground gave the impression that it was no big deal. I remember walking over to the lagoon/moat whatever it was and looking for it.

I remember that when I read about those joggers getting eaten! I thought, "man, I was an idiot to walk over there and stand so close to the water...he could have had me for lunch." I was only about 4 foot something.

Yes, Susan, that's a recent phenomenon - as we encroach on their habitat, they become more and more aggresive...
I have witnessed an attack on Cape Coral (a peninsula nearby) while my friends and I were walking their (large)retriever, a gator popped out of the canal and nabbed the dog. I was frozen in shock, buy my friends, used it by now, threw rocks at the gator and he released the dog, unharmed.
