Crocodile Hunted

There's a reason we travel with a photographer. He makes his living taking good photos. These are some of his croc shots. It's obvious he's better than myself (though I got much, much closer) and, well, I sorta hate him for it. (Just kidding, Marc.)





Also, as suspected, alligators can't run worth beans. Thanks for pointing that out, Ais. This means that, not only will I get extra close when capturing my Kodak moments next time, but I'll dance on their toothy heads afterwards. Because I can.

One time my dad brought a small alligator head home as a token of his affection after a conference in New Orleans. It was hard and leathery, with fake glass eyes gleeming with frozen fury over the slightly opened jaws. We all thought it was super cool, but our kitty about had a fit, he was terrified of its and would hiss and growl any time it came into his range of vision. Too bad he didn't know he could out run it.

I'm so, so very jealous. One of my goals is to see alligators in their domain while I'm on the east coast. Oh, and a manatee too..and flamingos, and..maybe I should just go live in FL for a while. or not.

Manatees are the sea cows of the ocean. And, according to recent reports in the news, they're smarter than we orignally took them for. There's a tour you can take in the Everglades that guarantees you'll see a manatee while on it or your money back. You can watch them breeeeathe. Think on it.
