Here's a somewhat larger cousin of that little gator I posted a couple of days ago. This one is safely ensconced in the Myakka River State Park's water system and will surely live to be a very old gator.
Can you believe some people move into Florida from inland northern places, see the gators and think they are cute? They feed them when they show up in residential waterways, lakes and ponds, and soon the gators lose their natural fear of humans. Then bad things happen... and these same people who fed them are surprised, angry, and demand the poor gator's hide for being a gator and doing what gators will do.
