Quiz Tuesday part 5

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I came upon this fellow enjoying his mid morning snack. Although they have 80 teeth, alligators do not chew their food (unlike the crocs), which brings us to today's question:
can you see what he is swallowing whole?

Hmm, that little red thing sticking out . . . I have no idea!

Victoria said...

Looks like a turtle! If it is then that is going to be rough on him!

Chris & Deb said...

well I don't see your leg in the shot, so thankfully it's not your foot!

Kate said...

My 12-yr-old grandson thinks it could be a snake. I think it's a bird of some kind--a flamingo perhaps??

Kate said...

A small mammal? A park sign?

Gerald England said...

At first glance it looks like a cat but I'm sure it can't be.

Curly said...

I think it's one of those Herons!

Where do you find these photos, Isabella? I'm glad to see the sun is out in Bonita Springs again! I, too, have no idea what that (little?) thing is eating, but I like the turtle idea.

Well, here's the story: when I first saw the gator I was convinced he was swallowing an upside-down toad (you must appreciate the fact that I didn't want to get too close:-) But when Victoria mentioned the turtle, I looked at other shots and it seems to be one, indeed (especially with the red tail sticking out!). So congrats to Victoria and Jusy for guessing right, to Kate and her grandson for trying hard, to Olivier, Gerald and Curly for being Euro-funny (and cruel!), to Deb&Chris for their corncern;-) and to Ruth...well, I am shocked how you concentrated on that sticking-out thing...

btw Jusy - timing is everyting! Sunny regards..
