Alligator

 
Posted by Picasa


Can you see the alligator in this picture? Only part of him is showing. You may have to click on the picture and enlarge it so you can see him. I took this picture at the Tallahasse Museum while I was walking on one of the nature trails with my grandson. We were walking on an elevated wooden walkway above the swamp so we were not in any danger!

I see the alligator! He's a big guy isn't he? At first I thought he was a log!

We see them only in the remote areas anymore. When the drought was bad a few years ago, they would come closer to the city. Seemed they developed a taste for "backyard dog." There was even a case where the gator tried to get a child.

I've just watched a stupid alligator horror movie.. and based on what I've seen of alligators, I don't think you're safe at all! Hahaha..

Another thing you have in Florida but not seen here in Yorkshire. No really dangerous wildlife hereabouts.

I enlarged it and saw the tail. Gosh - I think I'd be intimidated for sure. I've never seen one in real life. How sweet to go for a walk with your grandson...

I think I see him?! Scary!

Oh wow! I can't imagine living where it is common to see an alligator.

Well, I've seen enough! If you aren't expecting them, I'm sure it is quite startling.

The alligator is ubiquitous in Florida...and no problem...so long as you stay above or beyond...

Nice shot, Lois.

Alligators on a nature walk? Whoa. Our biggest danger up here are wood ticks and mosquitos. Well ok maybe wolves and bears too if you venture deep into the northwoods.
