Bring me your young! Taken about a mile from my house, in one of the in-town canals.

Wow, great picture. Did you wrestle it? Every now and then I hear stories about joggers in FL who get snapped up by one of these guys. Kinda scary.

It's against the law to even harass them! I do have friends who've wrestled them- they say that the jaw is awfully strong to close, but extremely weak to open. Get the mouth shut, you win.

They almost never venture more than a foot from the water. And most of the time they're scared stiff of people. Nevertheless, they are in every body of water in Florida, estimated population of 1,000,000, We have canals running everywhere through town.

Brian, I have to say you have some tough folks in FL. Someone sent me this link today. :)

wow, that's quite a story Linda! Yes, there are some tough folks down here. Some of them intentionally go looking for small gators (6' and under) to wrestle around with. Not me!
