    OMG that guy is huge and scary. You folks in Florida can keep those critters. LOL. I would not want one of those around here. It would eat my dogs!

    Great photograph. It really looks hungry with its mouth open like that!

    Cheers,
    BD

    What's funny is my late Mom asked me if it was a statue. LOL Not hardly!!! I told her that we were in the Everglades. They don't need statues of gators there.

    I'd have to agree with Steve -- looks like a croc not a gator.

    Great pic, Anne!

    Thanks. I think it only looks like a croc because of the angle, which is making the snout look narrower than it was. This was definitely a gator.

    The trick is to zig-zag. They are deadly at the sprint, but they can't do quick turns. (I lived in Kendall Lakes for 11 years and did a lot of golfing. We also fished a lot in the ponds in the Everglades.)

    And then, there are these beasties. This one was in the tree outside my neighbor's window (2nd floor). They are taking over South Florida. Looks quite different from the Iguanas I saw in Costa Rica though.

    This one was about six feet, from his nose, to the tip of his tail.
