Old Pal

Haven't seen this critter in over a year, he was always at the Lake floating around the past several years kinda like a King, I estimate him to be ten feet. I was kinda thinking somebody caught and ate him lately till yesterday, He's Back!

I actually have a baby one of those in an aquarium in my house. He is about three and a half feet long. That is a picture of him in my avitar. His name is Steve (not to be confused with Super Sneaky Steve).

When I first moved into my first house my buddy had a 18" or so Caymen... and asked if I would keep it while he moved places...

Well 2.5yrs later I still had Cliff and he was close to 4ft....

The Mrs was not all too pleased but it kept the neighborhood kids away! The day he came to take him back... we wrestled him into a garbage can and it was NOT easy. That tail was STRONG!

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

I had a friend that had a Caymen that was about that long, it was mean, you almost couldnt pick it up. The American Aligator is usually much more friendly, I can pull Steve out and hold him for a couple minutes and he calms right down. I can even set him on my lap and let him go, he will just lay there, like he is to comfy to move. He is a good conversation piece for people who have never seen him before. I used to have a second one as well, but for some reason she got sick and died. I was pretty bummed.

Last week there was a kinda funny local story on the news here. For the benefit of those members not familiar with Florida everything was a swamp a few years ago, they dug ditches to drain the land and built towns everywhere.............
This lady dials 911 "Hello! I got an alligator in my kitchen and need help".
911 operator " an alligator?"
lady "Yes, an alligator!"
911 "Are you sure it's not a lizzard?"
lady "YES I'M SURE IT'S NOT A LIZZARD, GET ME SOME HELP!"
911 "How long is This Alligator?" (can tell operator is still doubtful)
lady "His head and front legs sticking out from the table about THREE FEET!"

Eventually the operator sent a deputy, luckily he had a digi cam to record it. A game warden showed up an hour later, roped it and drug it to his truck, was 8 feet long. The gator crawled through the porch screen following the ladys cat they think. They do not re-locate them when they are that big. Took him to a processor.
