Here's our big bad "neighbor" that lives in the pond behind our house. I mentioned one day how I wish I didn't have curious kids with an all too friendly curious alligator, and the other day I grabbed this shot wen he was out sunning - one day when the weather was cooling off last week. While I don't mind him at this point, because he hasn't gotten close enough, we're watchful . . . as he doesn't seem very afraid of us. In fact, he likes the idea of coming up while we're feeding the fish, so we don't get to do that often. I'd say he's pretty close to four feet. Anyone want to come and visit? Maybe catch a gator?
