Look who Max and I saw on our walk this morning. This alligator is in the pond area right behind my house and down the street about 25 yards. He kept shutting his eyes when I took his picture. I believe Mr or Mrs Alligator is approximately 6 to 7 feet long. Way too big for this little pond. We have had a very dry Spring so the ponds here dry up so quickly. The rainy season doesn't start for several months, so I bet my new friend will move to deeper water very soon. The fun of living in Florida is that there are large reptiles living here right under your nose. Max and I kept a great distance and we were on higher ground, but just the same I will be watching for my new friend in my backyard.
Hope you are having a fun Tuesday.
