Okay, first you've got to excuse my doofy sweater -- it was Christmas, for goodness sakes!-- and look very carefully at that log on the bank behind me (almost directly behind my head.) It's a crocodile!!! What? Oh, Mommy just told me that it's an alligator. But it's a big one. Did you know you can tell how long an alligator is by estimating the distance between it's nose and eyes and turning that into feet. So if it looks like 6", that's a six-foot gator! Yikes!
I was just a 10 month old pup when this was photo was taken, but I wanted you all to see how I wrestled that 30' alligator to the ground Lacie. See? I'll protect you. Asta, you have nothing to worry about either when we go to Hilton Head (although I should probably tell you that this lagoon is right behind my Grannie's house.)
