It’s not often you see a gator this big …
Or come to think of it – any size at all – on Naples Beach.
|I was a scavenger of this sand sculpture …|
Let alone with a fish in his mouth!
Gators of course are freshwater creatures.
|Somebody else carved it,|
but I came in afterwards to take the photo.
Downstream in the brackish waters of the mangroves you’ll find crocodiles, or a few of them at least. I recently saw my first one on a tidal portion of the Tamiami Trail Canal. It caused quite a crowd, as many passing motorists had stopped to take a look.
By the time I got there all I head was a splash:
It had just attacked and killed a four foot gator.
