Quiz Tuesday part 34

Here's Al's older cousin, Gator, sunning himself next to the 12th hole of the Hurricane Golf Course.

Today's question - in your best estimation, how big is Gator?

Will accept any (reasonable) guess: in feet, meters or degrees of horror... The one who comes the closest to the actual size, will get to pet Gator ;-)

2,48 meters.

Looking for some food?
Hopefully he is just fond of golf balls, after having tasted all the ones dropped in the water?

Frank said...

My friend, Capt. Hook was the last one to win this contest so lets let Rauf win this time :-)

Victoria said...

I can't tell...he looks small to me, but I doubt you'd get too close to him...

So, eight feet?

Kate said...

He weights 949 pounds. How are you going to accurately determine his size, either in length, weight????

We got crocs down here, the size of houses, walking down the main street of Sydney, munching on cars and traffic lights as they go by!

That gator looks like a cute little pussy cat!

Moi said...

i'll pass the prize!!!

Ming_the_Merciless said...

The length of a golf cart or half the length of a SUV...so about 4 feet.

So who took a tape measure to Gator? And do you call this Gator Golf?

Olivier said...

il fait la sieste ? bravo pour le coup d'oeil sur cette photo. je dirais 250 kg (j'avoue que je me rends pas bien compte)

it makes the nap? cheer for the glance on this photograph. I would say 250 kg (I acknowledge that I do not realize well)

Zsolt said...

I think its like 1,5 meters...long

Nikon said...

I'll say 12 feet long - partly because he's at the 12th hole.
He looks much bigger than Al - such a nice town :)

oldmanlincoln said...

I measured him on my monitor at 19 inches.

Nice post. Clever question. Wild answers.

Thanks too for visiting and commenting on my blog.

Jilly said...

Too long for me to ever take up golf!

Fabrizio - ikol22 said...

Uhmm Interesting question. How about 4 meters? Er... Ehm... In case, may I choose the second award?

TOG said...

8 feet,I'm not sure about the pounds. Has he lunched on a golfer today?

Mandy said...

I think about 9ft 6inches - the only comparative thing in the photo is the sign on the right.

Hyde DP said...

I was going to say 12 feet, but Nikon has already said that so I'll stick my neck out and say 13 feet!

isabella said...

Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle!
I expect Tog (a native Floridian) and Victoria (our resident nature lover)to be in the ballpark, but Peter??? The most urbane Parisian Swede?
Yes, they are all right on - the gator looked to be about 8 feet (hey, you don't really expect me to chase him around the golf course with a ruler, do you?)

So Peter - when will you claim your prize? ;-)

Linda said...

I was going to guess 6 feet but got here too late. That's one big gator.

DS2944 said...

3 meters perhaps ?

Peter said...

I would like to claim my prize immeidately, but first I would like to know what it is. Im' a bit suspicious!

isabella said...

Peter - Your reward for winning the alligator guiz is spelled out right on the post:
"The one who comes the closest to the actual size, will get to pet Gator ;-)"
So, once again, congratulations and may God have mercy on your soul ;-)

As always, thanks to all for playing along...

Peter said...

Sorry I did not read carefully enough (I normally try to). I really appreciate the prize!

Lavenderlady said...

My goodness...golfers truly take their life in their own hands at this course...do they get some sort of penalty shot when the ball lands close to a gator?
