WOW! Gator in the driveway!
« on: April 24, 2008, 11:20:56 AM »
WOW! Yesterday was going out to check on some new calves and found a five foot Gator  in the driveway!  He was walking down the middle of it just like he owned it. The calves were never in danger. The nearest water to him at that point was just under a half mile away.  Guess he was looking for new territory.  Got to put the camera in the van.

Twenty years ago near the same spot found a Florida Cougar siting on a large limb of a Red Oak tree.  Life is fantastic! :)

It was looking for the kitchen door...

Yeah, you might expect that in Florida, but not here. :)

HAB, wow!!! imagine that, I have only seen crocodiles on TV when Steve was taming and wrestling them.  I bet they would be something to behold, how cool!!!  Beautiful and most wonderful day, Cindi
There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service
