Oh no......I'll be on the water......and the "little princess" terrier (or is terror?) will probably want to play with the cute wiggly Gator. That's what leashes are made for

The strange thing about the Palmer pond, which has multiple gators, is that there are still many ducks and turtles there. Wouldn't you think the ducks would move to another pond?

TalkHost, that picture certainly woke me up! I love all animals, but I do not like Gators. Those darn Gators can explode out of the water and grab your dog. If you back on a pond, please be very careful! One Gator started up the bank at Palmers when I was watching, and they move faster than a race horse. Luckily it was chasing another Gator that jumped back in the water. I'm still having nightmares.

I wouldn't let Lexi off the leash for ANYTHING. She'd be history.....the little pipsqueak!

I cropped it to make it closer. Let's see how it came out. I thought it would work, but I guess not.

Here's the one in BonnyBrook a few streets over from me. If you click on it it will go to a big picture. Don't know how to put the picture on here.

I thought we weren't allowed lawn ornaments below 466?

That gator looks deceptively jovial. I think he is smiling to himself, waiting to see what will walk out the front door.

The neighbor took a picture of the home owner looking out his door.

Default Gators

The gator at Red Fish is no longer with us. When they get to that size they are encouraged to leave us and not return. Unfortunate, but that's the way it is all around FL. The Gator Farm can't take them all and it is too much trouble to re-locate them. I just wonder if they use the meat.

Isn't that the Welcome Wagon?

Probably trying to sell a water softening service?

Nice alligator shoes!

Maybe they went to Lake Weir. I have not been there this year, but they used to have gator bites at Gator Joe's. They were actually pretty good the time I tried them. The Villages Florida
