Holding a gator

Update: This took place at Midway Airboat Rides near Orlando. Nice folks, fun tour. We saw a few alligators, a bald eagle, and three great blue herons. Plus some other stuff. Like a red-somethinged hawk sitting on a post, and a turtle sitting on another post, and a water snake resting in some tree roots.

Very cute gator.

What fun! I hate to mention it (but still will), but when I was in South America as a teenager, a local caught a camen about that size and cooked it up for dinner. It was quite delicious. Poor little guy.

Yum, alligator! Just like chicken! I had gator in New Orleans last year, and let me just say that gator sausage was delish.

Deep fried gator tail is the best. If you're preparing your own, make sure you pound the shit out of it to tenderize it, or else it'll be chicken flavored rubber.
