    Have put together a alligator and snake hunting team,next year.
    All the permits have been given out for this year.So will have to
    apply for next year. The lobster season will keep me busy until
    then. Would like to show you a gator hole,where the gator grabs
    and turns you down to the bottom of his hole, Gator holes have
    been photographed from under water. They feed the gator so
    much that hehas no room for anything in his digestive system.
    At night you can see the gator red eyes reflect if he is on top
    of the water.

    Gators maybe scary, but they have never been known to purposely attack grown humans. Actual gator attacks make hens teeth look commonplace.

    Snakes are another matter....., but even their attacks are in self-defense.

    WADR, Mr. Loose.:rolleyes:

    Mr. Billo ,I don,t have the news atricles handy,but there have been two women with there time of the month that alligators have come on to the bank and try to grab them. 24/7 NEWS is now, what about the missing women that like to jog along the water that are still missing.Now a day they cut the gators open and have found body parts.

    Then there was the story of Gertrude the Gator and the golf course. It appears a golfer went missing, but they finally found him, inside Gertrude. The pictures were pretty graphic as they removed the half digested body parts.

    I just did a search on it, it turned up as a hoax on Snopes.

    Moral of this story, nothing beats a little research.

    I was a believer in the Gertrude story till I did a Google search on it today. Before humans came on the scene gators were apex predators, it is important to remember that.

    As if gators weren't enough, idiots releasing their foreign and imported pets are really messing things up.

    Gator-guzzling python comes to messy end
